CBA Consultants conduct safety inspections on all types of vertical systems including wheelchair lifts, stage lifts, passenger/freight elevators, and sidewalk elevators. We conduct testing on more than 2,000 devices a year in New York City alone. To ensure the safety of the riding public many governing bodies, including New York City, require by law elevator inspections which need to be witnessed by a licensed third party agency.
New York City requires annual no load tests (Category One) as well as load tests every five years (Category Five) to ensure that the elevators are operating in a safe and proper manner. The purpose of these inspections is to identify deficient items in the elevators that, per code, need to be rectified by the maintenance company.
