Will the OSFM have elevator Inspectors?

No, we will not have any elevator inspectors. Inspections will be done by a licensed inspector who will also collect the annual certification fee of $100 in addition to any inspection fee charged by them.  The annual certification card will be sent after the inspection is reviewed.   

Our office will have a program manager with many years of elevator experience who will do spot inspections, respond to complaints, along with any accidents or major equipment failures. That person will also mediate any disputes or disagreements that arise between anyone involved in the industry.
