Safety Section Elevators
Since 1995, the West Virginia Division of Labor has been inspecting
elevators and escalators to ensure the safety of their users. The task of inspecting the hundreds of elevators across West Virginia was becoming impossible for the two or three inspectors in the Labor Division, so in 2004 the state inspection program was privatized,and the inspections are now performed by approved private inspectors.
The Division of Labor continues to provide oversight of the program, answering code questions and conducting quality control inspections. The program has become a model of private and public sectors working together to ensure your trips up and down West Virginia’s multi-story buildings are as safe as possible.
