Elevator Inspections

The State of Illinois requires all conveyances (i.e. elevators, escalators, lifts) to be registered with the 
State Fire Marshal's Office Division of Elevator Safety.  Information, registration forms, and requirements for installing, upgrading or modifying conveyances to State standards is available on their web page. 

The City of Oak Forest inspects elevators twice per year.  A certified inspector from
Thompson Elevator Inspection Service, Inc. performs the inspections for the City in April and October.  All inspections are billed at cost plus $10.  The current inspection fee is $60.  Once approved for use, the City will issue a certificate for each elevator.

Building owners: please keep your contact information current with the City of Oak Forest (this includes elevator maintenance contractor information).  Your elevator maintenance contractor is your best source for determining compliance needs.
