The Boiler and Elevator Safety Law is intended to provide for the safe operation and use of boilers, pressure systems, amusement rides, and elevators and kindred equipment in the state of Hawai`i. It is administered through the Boiler and Elevator Inspection Branch of HIOSH.
Like the Occupational Safety and Health part of HIOSH, standards are adopted and enforced through compliance inspections and investigations. Permits to operate are issued regarding any boiler, pressure system, amusement ride, or elevator and kindred equipment if found to be safe in accordance with these standards. In addition, Branch staff reviews and approves plans for new installation, repairs, or modification of equipment covered by this Law.
If you own or manage a building and need to install, repair, alter or relocate boiler and pressure systems or to install, construct, alter, or modernize any elevator or kindred equipment, forms for permits are available below.
