Safety Section Overview
The Safety Section of the WV Labor Division enforces the Elevator Safety Act, the Steam Boiler Inspection Law and the Amusement Rides and Amusement Attractions Safety Act. In addition, this section also administers the OSHA Onsite Consultation Program which is designed to assist WV businesses in identifying and eliminating safety hazards in the workplace.
The section also provides oversight and registration for private state contractors who perform inspections of elevators, boilers, and amusement rides. Providing that the devices pass the annual inspections that are conducted by registered contractors, the Safety section issues Certificates and Permits to Operate.
State boiler inspectors also conduct inspections of uninsured boilers.
