#NEIISafetyChallenge review: Riders should be mindful of and compliant with elevator weight limits posted in each car. The interior size of the elevator car determines its capacity, so if a car is tightly packed with passengers, it is likely exceeding the elevator's weight limit.

While we confirm our #NEIISafetyChallenge winners, let's review the questions! NEII supports the adoption of elevator inspection programs that conform with ASME A17.1/CSA B44 safety code, which is administered by inspectors employed by authorities having jurisdiction.

While we confirm our #NEIISafetyChallenge winners, let's review the questions! Elevator door interlocks ensure doors are closed before a car is allowed to move. Door RESTRICTORS were added to safety code in what year to lock the elevator doors when it's not level with the floor?
