I'd like to ask you, Ashleigh Wilson, what is the biggest risk?
Safety and compliance. Every elevator is is inspected, safety tested and inspected. So you need to make sure that your certificate is consistently up to date, and that your testing has been completed. Now the way that we can avoid this risk, start with your service contract, making sure that you ask your elevator company, what state required testing or city required testing is is what intervals and what tests; all of them. Because they'll say they may say hey, you have to do this every one year in this every five years. And there's fire service testing that the owner can do, or the elevator company can do get the elevator company to tell you everything that's required and who can do it. And who if they can train the owner. Get that covered under your service contract, that's going to be the cheapest way to do it. And making sure that you're transferring that ownership or that responsibility on to the the elevator company. The second is going to be tracking that certificate expiration date, the state can be past due. So waiting for the state to come out and perform your testing is risky business, put a calendar invite on your on your schedule, so that you reach out to the state before your certificate expires, and send them an email, please come inspect my equipment. If you can't come inspect my equipment on time, can you write me an email granting me temporary coverage or temporary certificate until you can come complete the inspection. Some generally the the state inspector will write you an email and say this email serves as your temporary certificate until we can come out and inspect your equipment. That way you have that in writing from from the inspection company and from the elevator company. So making sure passengers are safe on the equipment and making sure that your compliance is up to date with the state endorsee.
