Campaign Recognizes Efforts of VT Personnel In India

International Sourcing Exposition for Elevators & Escalators (ISEE), an industry event being held in Mumbai, has launched the “ELEVATOR MECHANICS – You Keep the World Moving” public campaign to recognize the work of elevator personnel during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Print reports. The campaign is in response to the lack of recognition of those who work on lifts, elevators and escalators as essential service workers, meaning that these personnel rarely received priority for facilities and vaccinations or government support, according to the source. Some elevator mechanics were even charged with lockdown violations as they continued to work in different buildings to keep the elevators moving, and many would walk miles to attend to elevators due to not being able to use public or private transport. The source reports that some were infected and/or died due to these efforts. TAK Mathews of TAK Consulting said, “It is but a small step to urge the world to acknowledge the elevator mechanics, who, despite their tireless work during a difficult time, have been taken for granted.” The first step of the campaign was through outdoor media on billboards at premium and strategic locations in Mumbai. ISEE was originally scheduled for November 5 to 7, 2020. It will now be held on December 9, 10 and 11, 2021. For more information on the campaign or about ISEE, visit www.tak-expo.net.
