Re: “Elevator repair man killed on job at UAMS

The Safety meetings that these men attend on a regular basis and how it is drilled into them from day one I find it impossible that he did not secure this elevator. I find it highly likely that someone needed an elevator and did the unthinkable and used this elevator anyway. My son was a helper of Brent's and you know if someone is safe or not or takes chances and Brent did not. These men are professionals and I am insulted that anyone would think that he did not think of his own safety When he thought of everyone else's Safety that used that Elevator. That is why you pay for Elevator Mechanics to be on sight so your elevators are in excellent running condition making them safe for hospital personnel and visitors and patients alike.
Elevator people know it only takes one time. They know that one time is over in seconds with No take backs. They do not crawl into the pit without securing that big heavy metal box looming over their head. No One would take that chance, NO ONE! I don't care what kind of hurry you are in. A pit crawl is a thought out maneuver no one likes to do. It is not easy to get into the pit (for good reason)
and anyone who was going to have to do it be it elevator man or civilian they would not do it until that big heavy box was not going to come down on them. Would you crawl down there knowing that box might move down there? NO WAY IN HELL YOU WOULD. Brent would not have either. He was on the clock he didn't care how long it took . It takes what it takes Safety First. His, Yours and Everyone's.
I pray his wife doesn't see your comments.
We are all anxiously waiting to see what the investigation yields. I have the feeling Know what happened. As the wife of an elevator mechanic for 35 years
You get a feel for what happened when you know what it takes for that machine to move, a pushed button!
