Dumb waiter, cargo lift, and materials lift inspections

When a dumb waiter, cargo lift, or materials lift is installed, it can only be used once it has passed a rigorous safety inspection (acceptance test). It is our belief that this is one of the most important inspections, and the responsibility of checking that all safety aspects have been properly addressed is something we take very seriously. Similarly, if any of these devices is modified, it must be retested before use can be resumed.

Once in service, whether a dumb waiter, cargo lift, or materials lift requires recurring inspections depends on the rules in your local jurisdiction, and may reflect the location and use of the device. In some jurisdictions, such devices in public locations require inspection every 6 months (routine inspection). Overlord Services can assist with any type of inspection, and on all types of device. A periodic inspection requires the presence of your maintenance mechanic, whereas a routine inspection does not. We are happy to coordinate with your maintenance mechanic to arrange the type of inspection you require at a time and day convenient to you.

All our inspections are performed to appropriate National (ASME) code specifications. You will receive a detailed inspection report, which we will also send to your City or County Building Official, where applicable.

When the dumb waiter, cargo lift, or materials lift has passed the safety inspection, we will issue a Certificate of Operations, if that is not provided by your municipality.

Whether your device is on land or shipboard, please feel free to contact us regarding how we can help oversee your safety.
