On the 25th of July 2015, a 30-year old woman named Xiang Liujuan and her two-year old son were stepping on an escalator in Anliang Mall in Jingzhou, China. Upon reaching the top, one of the metal panels that held the floor suddenly collapsed, swallowing Xian to the horror of mall attendants who witnessed the incident. Luckily for the boy, she was pushed by Xiang just before she was crushed by the escalator. It was later found out that maintenance work had been done on the escalator but workers forgot to secure the panel back in place.

For every purchase of mechanical equipment, appliances and even newly finished buildings that need regular maintenance, a contractor must be on call to service these in case of damages, breakdowns, and even preventive maintenance. In order to save on expenses, a contractor is often hired for a monthly or regular fee to service anything that needs repair or replacement. In the case of buildings, this means fixing leaky faucets, maintenance on lighting, elevators, heaters or air-conditioning, boilers, and washing machines.

A maintenance contract is just like any other contract, which is a document that is signed by the owner and contractor. It details the terms of service that the contractor needs to provide to maintain whatever field the owner’s business is engaged in, whether these are machinery, cars, elevators, or buildings. The main purpose of a maintenance contract is to have a consistent availability of service being provided by a contractor in case of emergency, even on 24-hour basis. By availing of such services, the owner can secure a promise of continued and constant service, which the contractor is bound to heed based on the binding contract agreement.

The details of a contract agreement includes the price and the duration of the service, including if and when it is terminated with or without cause, depending on provisions agreed upon. Payment being agreed may either be monthly or weekly, and in some cases, inspections may be carried out to check if the client is satisfied with the kind of work being rendered before payment is given.

The Anliang Mall incident highlights not only the poor quality of maintenance service in China but served as a wake-up call to improve maintenance services all over the country. To prevent such incidents from happening, our samples include provisions for insurance prerequisites that maintenance contractors must have to cover incidents or accidents like what happened in China. Such insurance provisions not only covers the contractor but include damage to property, death, and injury in what is known as a liability policy.
