Installation

In the ACT, the Scaffolding and Lifts Regulation 1950 requires the installer of the lift (the Lift Company) to submit a 'Notice of Intention to Erect or Alter a Lift'. This applies to all lifts including service lifts and disabled access lifts. All lifts that are installed in the ACT need to comply with the current Lift Code of Australia.

Once the lift is erected, the lift company will contact Worksafe to arrange a "pre-commissioning inspection and test " on the lift (both new and upgraded). Worksafe charges an initiation fee of $44 plus $29 per hour for this service. (This fee is revised regularly). There is no requirement for the owner to arrange an annual inspection. For more information, contact ACT Worksafe on 6205 0200.
