Inspection fees.

The initial inspection of construction, alteration or relocation of a conveyance is included with the permit fee. Once the department has approved the initial installation of the conveyance, a temporary 30-day operating certificate will be issued. Prior to the expiration of the 30-day temporary operating certificate, the application for an annual operating certificate and the appropriate fees shall be paid to the department. Once the department has received the appropriate fees and application the owner will be issued the first annual operating certificate. The owner or owner's representative will receive an invoice from the department for renewal. The owner is required to renew the annual operating certificate yearly.
The following inspections require an additional inspection fee:
(1) Reinspection. If a conveyance does not pass an initial inspection and an additional inspection is required, the fee for each reinspection of a conveyance is $174.30 per conveyance plus $84.50 per hour for each hour in addition to the first hour.
The department may waive reinspection fees.
(2) Inspecting increases in the height (jumping) of personnel and material hoists.
(a) The fee for inspecting an increase in the height (jumping) of each personnel hoist or material hoist is $174.30 plus $86.70 per hour for each hour in addition to two hours.
This fee is for inspections occurring during regular working hours.
(b) The permit holder may be allowed to operate a hoist prior to the jump inspection if:
(i) The electrical limits will not allow the lift to operate above the previously inspected landing; and
(ii) The state elevator inspector is contacted, agrees and can schedule an inspection within three days.
(3) Variance inspections.

This fee is for inspections occurring during regular working hours.
(b) The fee for a variance that does not require an on-site inspection is $86.70 per conveyance.
The individual requesting the variance shall provide the department with pictures, documentation, or other information necessary for the department to review the variance. The department may conduct an on-site variance inspection to verify the information provided or if it determines that an inspection is necessary. If an on-site variance inspection is performed, the fees in (a) of this subsection will apply.
(4) "Red tag" status fee. The annual fee for a conveyance in "Red tag" status is $43.00.

The department shall be provided with written approval from the building official, indicating that the conveyance is not required for building occupancy, when applying to have the conveyance placed in voluntary red tag status.

Once the decommission inspection has been performed and approved, the conveyance will no longer require annual inspections until such time that the conveyance is brought back into service. Prior to operating the conveyance, a new inspection and annual operating permit shall be obtained.

The fee for this inspection will be $174.30 per conveyance and $86.70 per hour for each hour in addition to two hours plus the standard per diem and mileage allowance granted to department inspectors.
The owner/potential purchaser requesting the voluntary inspection will not be subject to any penalties based on the inspector's findings.

Definition and use.

(1) These rules define a "WAC material lift" as a fixed stationary conveyance that:
(a) Has a car or platform moving in guides;
(b) Serves two or more floors of a building or structure;
(c) Has a vertical rise of at least 1524 mm (60 in.) and no more than 18.288 m (60 ft.);
(d) Has a maximum speed of 0.254 m/s (50 ft./min.);
(e) Is not part of a conveying system but is an isolated self-contained lift;
(f) Travels only in an inclined or vertical direction;
(g) Is operated or supervised by an individual designated by the employer;
(h) Is installed in a commercial or industrial area not accessible to the general public; and
(i) May not be operated from within the car.
(2) WAC material lifts shall not carry people so their operation or failure will not endanger people working near them. WAC 296-96-05010 through 296-96-05290 establishes requirements for the construction, installation, and operation of standard material lifts.
These rules do not apply to conveyances that lack a car (platform) and use rollers, belts, tracks, power conveyors, or similar carrying (loading) surfaces. (See ASME/ANSI B20.1.)

Testing of safeties and governors.

(1) The safety shall be tested before the inclined private residence elevator is put into service. It shall be tested while the elevator is carrying its rated load.
(2) Governors on instantaneous type safeties shall be tested by manually tripping the governor while the elevator is traveling at its rated speed. Creating sufficient slack in the rope and dropping the elevator is a method of testing speed governors located on an elevator or chassis.

Driving machines and sheaves.

(1) Winding drums, traction sheaves, overhead sheaves and deflecting sheaves shall:
(a) Be made of cast iron or steel;
(b) Have diameters at least 30 times the diameter of the wire hoisting ropes; and
(c) Have machined rope grooves.
EXCEPTIONS:
• If 8 x 19 steel ropes are used, drum and sheave diameters are permitted to be reduced to 21 times the diameter of the hoisting rope.
 
• Existing incline lifts suspended by cables are not required to have machine grooves, except for the first row of cables wrapped on the drum and a tracking device shall be required to monitor the winding of the cable on the drum.
 
• On existing inclined lifts suspended by cables that do not have machine grooves on the drum, the first layer of ropes will be recognized as providing the same traction as grooves, provided that this layer remains on the drum at all times and is not allowed to wind out. Such lifts shall be provided with a rope tracking device to ensure that the rope does not wind over itself on the drum.
(2) The factor of safety, based on the static load (the rated load plus the weight of the car, ropes, counterweights, etc.) to be used in the design of driving machines and sheaves, shall be at least:
(a) 8 For driving machines and sheaves built of wrought iron and steel; or
(b) 10 For driving machines built of cast iron, cast steel or other materials.
(3) Set screw type fastenings shall not be substituted for keys or pins if connections are subject to torque or tension.
(4) Gears:
(a) When connecting drums or sheaves to the main driving gear, friction gears, clutch mechanisms or couplings shall not be used.
(b) Worm gears having cast iron teeth shall not be used.
(5) Brakes:
(a) Electric brakes shall be of the friction type set by springs and shall release electrically.
(b) All brakes shall be able to stop and hold an elevator carrying 125 percent of its rated load.
(c) At least one brake shall be mounted so that the drum will hold the rated load in the case of gearbox failure.
(d) If a single ground or short-circuit, a counter-voltage or a motor field discharge occurs and the operating device is set in the stop position, the brake magnet shall set the brake.
(6) Driving machines:
(a) A driving machine shall be permitted to be mounted on an elevator chassis or in a remote location. However, if mounted in a remote location, all sheaves and sprockets shall be guarded and positioned so the hoisting ropes and chains remain properly aligned while the elevator is in use.
(b) Screw type machines shall not be used.
(c) Hydraulic driving machines shall conform to ASME A17.1/CSA B44.
(d) Roped-hydraulic machines shall be permitted to be use
