Inspections

How do I schedule an inspection of my elevator?
As of November 1st, 2011 The Division of Building Safety - Industrial Safety Section - Elevator Program will no longer accept elevator requests by phone or in person. This is effective for all regions. All inspection requests will need to be emailed to safety@dbs.idaho.gov. Please include the following in your inspection request:
  • State ID#
  • Name of Owner
  • Name of Building
  • Physical address where elevator is located
  • Person to contact to schedule inspection
  • Once the email has been received and the elevator confirmed, an inspector or office staff will contact you within 2 working days to schedule the inspection.
    If it is an inspection request for an acceptance, please include the pre-inspection checklist with the email request.
