Since 1995, the West Virginia Division of Labor has been inspecting elevators and escalators to ensure the safety of their users. In 2004 the state inspection program was privatized and the inspections are performed by approved private inspectors.
The Division of Labor continues to provide oversight of the program, answering code questions and conducting quality control inspections. Elevator Safety ContactsElevator Safety Fact Sheet
