Handover date, followed by info on when new ropes were fitted,and the lay (langs or ordinary) sizes number of cores etc. new brake linings, date of any test done, or due, and an approximation of when to replace major components I.E. controllers, door drives,trailers etc.Any info on service dates and/or recommendations But by far the most important would be any hazards for personnel not used to the site, for instance the unit may have an exceptionally deep or shallow pit, the cross beam at the shaft top may cause a crushing hazard, when on top running on normal.(I know you shouldn't but, how many of us can say we never have??) Is there any known items such as asbestos, or unique procedure in the event of fire?? Every unit is different but start with the safety, always the safety.
