Elevator Insurance Companies

The State of Ohio elevator inspection section is responsible for ensuring that all inspections required to be conducted by the Ohio Revised Code are completed in a timely manner. This includes inspections conducted by both general as well as special inspectors. In addition, the inspections must be performed with proper accountability as outlined in the Ohio Administrative Code. Inspections and inspectors are subject to review and monitoring. When conducting inspections in Ohio, Insurance (Special) Inspectors must be conducting inspections on behalf of an insurance company, (self-insured does not qualify) that holds the coverage for the building where the equipment is located. Ohio law does not permit the owner of a building to have the authority to “authorize” an inspection be conducted in lieu of the State of Ohio for issuance of a Certificate of Operation. Only an insurance company can employ or utilize a Special (Insurance) Inspector. All Special (Insurance) Inspectors must have a current Ohio Certificate of Competency in order to perform inspections in the State of Ohio. *References ORC 4105.07 and 4105.10
