Consumer Safety

The Safety Section of the WV Labor Division enforces the Elevator Safety Act, the Steam Boiler Inspection Law, the Amusement Rides and Amusement Attractions Safety Act and the Zipline and Canopy Tour Responsibility Act.

The section also provides oversight and registration for private state contractors who perform inspections of elevators, boilers, amusement rides, ziplines/canopy tours and the registration of elevator mechanics and apprentices.  Providing that the devices pass the annual inspections that are conducted by registered contractors, the Consumer Safety Section issues Certificates and Permits to Operate.

State boiler inspectors conduct inspections of uninsured boilers and state amusement ride inspectors conduct inspections for non-profit organizations and public agencies.
