Safety is our No.1 Priority
Safety is a core value at Otis and therefore influences everything we do. Our safety standards surpass industry guidelines, which is why our incident levels are consistently lower than the industry average. In addition, all our engineers undertake regular training and are consistently audited by third party organisations to help ensure everyone’s safety.
Managing your insurance reports
It is a legal requirement for you to arrange an inspection of your equipment every 6 months by a third party. Once this inspection has been completed, we make it easy for you to manage any work requirements, which ultimately helps to keep your equipment safe for passengers. Just send the report to our dedicated team at firstname.lastname@example.org. The report will generate a work order which will be sent directly to your engineer’s PDA.
The Otis customer portal is accessible anytime from your computer, tablet or mobile device. Use it to manage your entire lift, escalator and moving walkway portfolio. It has been designed to enable you to: Stay up-to-date with your lift service history and performance data.

The portal will also provide you details of your Sales, and Service Delivery Managers at Otis so you can get in touch.
