Indiana elevator codes impose a responsibility on building owners and property managers to adhere to specific requirements within elevators, ensuring the safety of all occupants. Failure to comply with these codes can result in penalties and potential legal action. While the particulars of the Indiana elevator code may differ at the state and local levels, three primary codes govern elevator safety: the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the International Building Code (IBC), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates unrestricted and equal access to services for individuals with disabilities.
The International Building Code (IBC) establishes precautions against hazards associated with constructed environments.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) plays a pivotal role in the development of codes and standards.
The State of Indiana (IN) currently operates under the 2007 ASME A17.1 and CSA B-44 Code
About the Elevators and Amusement Rides Section
The Elevators and Amusement Rides Section regulates two of the safest modes of transportation that exist today: elevators and amusement rides. As with any mechanical device, accidents can occur. However, the safety requirements for these devices are robust and accidents are infrequent. It has been estimated that 275 million people travel 95,000 miles every day by elevator.
There are approximately 20,000 regulated lift devices (such as elevators, escalators, and amusement rides) in Indiana. Ensuring the safety of these mechanical devices are nationally certified inspectors. These inspectors perform inspections annually in office buildings, factories, hospitals, schools, nursing homes, and in other not-so-common places such as TV towers, smokestacks, steel mills, and grain storage buildings.
These same inspectors will be found at fairgrounds, theme parks, and indoor amusement parks inspecting amusement rides throughout the spring, summer, and fall and at ski lodges in the winter.
All National Association of Amusement Ride Safety Officials (NAARSO) are Level 1 certified amusement inspectors. The amusement ride inspectors completed 1,936 amusement ride inspections in 2022.
