Elevating Devices Inspection Booking Procedure

New and Altered Devices

Booking procedure

The elevating devices contractor must contact the primary safety officer by telephone to book an inspection. Refer to the table and maps at the bottom of the page.

  1. Request for an inspection requires minimum notice of three business days. For areas 301, 302, 303, 401, 402 and 501, minimum notice of five business days is required. Advance booking of more than three weeks may not be granted.
     
  2. Once an agreed upon time and date have been set for the inspection, the safety officer who will carry out the inspection will confirm with the elevating devices contractor. If the parties are not able to agree to a suitable inspection date, the primary safety officer will contact an alternate safety officer to find the best available date.
     
  3. If an agreement cannot be reached between the elevating devices contractor and the primary safety officer and/or the alternate safety officer, please contact the field services leader for elevating, ropeways and amusements (see item #14 below).
     
  4. If elevating devices contractors are requesting an overtime inspection, the request for overtime inspection form must be completed and submitted. Upon approval of the request, the request will be forwarded to the appropriate safety officer and the safety officer will contact the elevating devices contractor to make inspection arrangements.
     
  5. Upon booking an inspection with a safety officer, elevating devices contractors are required to submit:
    a) Request for Acceptance Inspection Form, and
    b) General Contractors or Owners Checklist along with pit drain letter.
    All forms must be duly signed and emailed to the safety officer for all elevating devices inspection requests. Both forms must be received a minimum of three business days prior to the inspection. Incomplete forms will not be accepted and will result in the inspection being rescheduled at a later time.
     
  6. Cancellations must be received a minimum of two business days in advance, and should be made directly to the safety officer. Cancellations outside of that timeframe will be considered a failed inspection and the full inspection fee with applicable travel costs will apply. Any costs related to booked airfare and accommodations will be charged regardless of notice given.
     
  7. The applicable data sheet checklist must be completed prior to the inspection and must be given to the safety officer at the start of the inspection. Incomplete checklists will constitute a failed inspection.
     
  8. The contractor is responsible for making all the testing equipment required for the acceptance test available. Failure to have testing equipment available on site may result in a failed inspection.
     
  9. Should the jobsite or elevating device not be ready for a final inspection, the safety officer will not conduct the inspection and the full inspection fee with applicable travel costs will apply.
     
  10. Any delay for corrections on site and during inspection will result in additional hourly fees.
     
  11. Safety officers will not issue a final passed certificate of inspection if non-compliances are found. Non-compliances on a final acceptance will result in a re-inspection and full inspection charges will apply.
     
  12. Failed inspections will result in all travel costs (i.e., mileage, travel time, accommodation etc.) to be billed to the failed inspection and all subsequent re-inspections.
     
  13. If the jobsite needs to be re-inspected, the elevating devices contractor is to re-book with the primary safety officer. It may be a minimum of two weeks from the date of failed inspection.
     
  14. If you experience difficulty contacting a safety officer please contact Pinder Randhawa, Field Services Leader, Elevating, Ropeways and Amusements at 778 773 8803.
