Nowadays, elevators have become an important infrastructure for people's daily life, which is related to the living and working of thousands of households and the convenience of travel. Regular inspection is like a "physical examination", which conducts a comprehensive inspection of elevator safety management, maintenance, and equipment health to prevent elevator "sick" operations.
