Swerrie's "hands-on experience," as well as activity as an inspector, department supervisor, consulting engineer and association official, combined with a knack for communicating, has provided the industry with these compiled articles concerning elevator/escalator safety.
Industry members who design, market, install, maintain, repair, modernize, inspect or operate vertical transportation equipment seek to beaware of hazards and appropriate counter measures. This common concern for safety "in the public interest" has led to the publishing of Defensive Elevatoring.
