Public Safety Programs


The Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) has three major units devoted to conducting inspections to protect the public from safety hazards:

The Elevator and Ride and Tramway Units conducts public safety inspections of elevators, amusement rides -- both portable and permanent -- and aerial passenger tramways, or ski lifts.

The Pressure Vessel Unit conducts public safety inspections of boilers, air and liquid storage tanks, and other types of pressure vessels.
