Four lifts at Trelleborg’s infirmary were used despite an inspector prohibiting it.

Now Region Skåne is fined SEK 193,000, reports Trelleborg’s Allehanda.

According to the inspection in October, two of the elevators had incipient wear on the ropes and in the other two the emergency telephones were not working. The property owner claims that the wear and tear was not as serious as claimed and that the phones had been repaired but that it took time to get them inspected.
