Inspectors perform electrical and plumbing inspections of new construction and repairs or alterations to existing structures. All new elevator, ski lift, tramway and amusement ride installations are inspected; and existing elevators, ski lifts, tramways and amusement rides are inspected annually. Boilers and pressure vessels are inspected according to a time schedule established in the national code, which varies from annually to every five years. The Mechanical Inspection Section issues licenses to qualified workers certifying their fitness to perform work in the electrical, plumbing, boiler operation fields. Construction contractor licensing and Electrical or Mechanical Administrator licensing are ongoing enforcement programs that are carried out in concert with other duties.
