Our Elevator Inspection Process

At Insparisk, we offer a comprehensive range of elevator condition assessments to ensure the safety and operational efficiency of your elevator systems. We understand that keeping elevators in good working condition is critical due to their potential for being a source of accidental injury or death if not maintained regularly. That’s why our experienced team of professionals provides thorough inspections to identify any problems and make sure your elevator is up to code.

We take pride in providing the best inspection services available in the greater New York City metropolitan region and beyond, so you can rest easy knowing that your passengers are safe. A comprehensive inspection of elevator equipment is an important part of ensuring safe and efficient operations. To perform a thorough inspection, the following steps should be followed:

  • 1

    Verify that all elevator safety features are up to code and functioning properly. This includes brakes, landing zone door sensors, overspeed governors, emergency phones, alarms, etc.

  • 2

    Monitor the moving parts of the elevator, such as cables, belts, pulleys, and other components. Check for worn or damaged pieces that need to be replaced or repaired.

  • 3

    Inspect the interior and exterior of the elevator cab, including walls, floors, lighting fixtures, doors, and door frames. Look for signs of damage or wear and tear that may require repair.

  • 4

    Check the operation of the elevator itself, testing its speed and braking power. Ensure that all safety protocols are in place and functioning correctly.

  • 5

    Perform a comprehensive visual inspection of the control system to ensure no components have been tampered with or broken. Also, check for any signs of electrical arcing or corrosion that could lead to malfunction.

  • 6

    Test the elevator communication system to ensure that it is functioning properly and can be used in an emergency.

  • 7

    Review all operating logs and service records for the elevator, ensuring that they are up-to-date and accurate.

  • 8

    Confirm that all elevator safety features are still working correctly after any maintenance or repairs have been completed.

Elevator Inspection Regulations Differ in Various Jurisdictions

Inspection regulations differ across different jurisdictions, as each state in the US has its own set of rules and regulations regarding the frequency and components to be inspected. Generally, states require annual inspections for all elevators, with more frequent inspections being based on usage and history. The frequency of inspections can range from once a year to once every three to five years, depending on the jurisdiction. In order to ensure that all elevators are up-to-code and functioning properly, jurisdictions may also have specific regulations about what must be inspected during an elevator inspection. It is important for customers to follow their local jurisdiction’s elevator inspection regulations in order to ensure their passengers’ safety as well as maintain the operational efficiency of their elevator systems. At Insparisk, we understand this importance, which is why our experienced team of professionals provides thorough inspections to identify any problems and make sure your elevator meets all the necessary standards set forth by your local government.

Elevator Inspection FAQs

During an elevator inspection, an inspector looks for signs of wear and tear on the system’s moving parts, such as cables, belts, pulleys, and other components. The inspector also checks the safety features of the elevator to make sure they are up to code and functioning correctly. Additionally, the inspector verifies that all operating logs and service records are up-to-date and accurate.

The frequency of an elevator inspection depends on the type of elevator system being inspected, as well as its age and usage. Generally speaking, elevators should be inspected at least once every six months (semi-annually). However, if the elevator is used frequently or in hazardous conditions, more frequent inspections may be necessary.

For safety reasons, elevator inspections must be performed by certified professionals. InspaRisk employs a team of experienced and highly trained inspectors who are up to date on the latest codes and regulations. Our inspectors have years of experience in the elevator industry and are committed to providing the highest quality inspection services available.

An elevator inspection is a comprehensive process that involves testing the safety features of an elevator system, inspecting its moving parts and interior components such as walls and floors, verifying that its communication system is functioning properly, and reviewing all operating logs and service records for accuracy.

Elevator inspections are important for ensuring the safety and operational efficiency of an elevator system. Regular inspections and maintenance reviews help identify any potential problems that could lead to accidents or malfunctions.
