ELEVATOR INSPECTIONS PROGRAM

Nebraska's Elevator Law, Sections 48-2501 through 48-2533 requires that all freight and passenger elevators in the State be inspected at least once every twelve months. These inspections are conducted to determine whether all such equipment is safe and in satisfactory operating condition and properly constructed and maintained for the purpose for which it is meant to be used.

Upon completion of the inspection and receipt of the fee, each owner is issued a certificate that must be posted in the elevator car. This law does not apply to elevators that are under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Government, elevators used exclusively for agricultural purposes, and elevators in private residences.

The state elevator inspector maintains an accurate record of the owner or user of each elevator and equipment subject to the Elevator Law as well as a full description of the equipment and inspection dates.

Inspections will not be made on any elevator if the owner or user of the equipment obtains an inspection by the representative of a reputable insurance company licensed to do business in Nebraska. Such owners, must file the certificate of inspection by the insurance company as well as a statement that the equipment is insured.

Upon completion of the inspection, the inspector will notify the owner or user in writing of any equipment found to be unsafe or unfit for operation. This notice will indicate to the owner whether or not the equipment may be used without making the repair. The inspector may permit the owner reasonable time to make any repairs.

The annual inspection fee may vary depending on the type of equipment. Please refer to Section 48-418.09 of the statute for a list of fees.
