Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Elevator Safety and Regulation Act. Defines "residential accessibility license". Provides that after January 1, 2006, no person shall erect, construct, wire, alter, replace, maintain, remove, or dismantle any conveyance contained within buildings or structures in the jurisdiction of this State unless he or she is registered as an elevator industry apprentice or a helper by the Office of the State Fire Marshal and works under the direct supervision of an individual licensed under the Act as an elevator mechanic. Provides that the Office shall set elevator industry apprenticeship and helper qualifications and registration procedure by rule. Provides that an applicant for licensure as an elevator mechanic who provides acceptable proof that he or she has worked as an elevator constructor, maintenance, or repair person must make application within 3 months after the effective date of the initial rules adopted by the Elevator Safety Review Board that implement the Act (now, within one year of the effective date of the Act). Provides that a residential accessibility license shall be issued to an individual who has demonstrated certain qualifications required to obtain an elevator mechanic's license and who performs A18.1 work in a private owner occupied residence. Provides that an applicant for licensure as an elevator contractor may demonstrate 5 years work experience in the elevator industry by providing proof of insurance and submitting the business address and contact information of a designated officer within such business. Provides that a license issued under the Act must be renewed every 2 years (now, biannually). Removes a provision that requires the Office to inspect all newly installed and existing platform lifts and stairway chair lifts for private residences subsequent to an inspection by a person, firm, or company to which a license to inspect conveyances has been issued. Provides that any owner or lessee who violates any of the provisions of the Act shall be fined in an amount not to exceed $1,500 per violation, per day (now, just $1,500). Provides that the notice of safety requirements that the Office is required to provide to owners of private residences where a conveyance is located must be provided annually. Makes other changes.
