Due to concerns related to COVID-19, the Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS) is taking precautions to protect the health and safety of our customers and our employees. While the OPS Conveyance Program remains open for business, we encourage you to utilize our online, email and telephone services as much as possible to minimize social contact.
Understanding that your contractors, consultants and third party inspectors may not have been available to provide you with timely service, OPS provided regulated owners and operators with extensions to any compliance-related deadline that occurred in March or April of 2020. Beginning in May 2020, OPS will consider case-by-case extensions to compliance deadlines if necessary due to the COVID-19 situation. Please contact your OPS program representative if you need to discuss deadlines and extensions.
As many of our staff will be working remotely over the next few weeks, there may be slight delays to our normal response times. If you are experiencing a delay in response time, please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
The mission of the OPS Conveyance Program is to protect the riding public and industry personnel in the State of Colorado from the hazards of dangerous conveyances.
To achieve this mission, the Conveyance Program requires that:
- All elevators, escalators, dumbwaiters, wheelchair lifts, APM (i.e., the train at DIA) and other regulated conveyances located in the State of Colorado be registered with OPS;
- The installation, alteration, maintenance, testing and annual inspection of regulated conveyances is completed according to the Colorado conveyance regulations, industry code and the standards adopted in statute and regulation; and
- All conveyance contractors, mechanics and inspectors maintain a current license issued by OPS to ensure that the installation, alteration and maintenance of conveyances in the State of Colorado are completed by qualified personnel.
The Conveyance Program may also delegate regulation authority to municipalities, counties or other authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ) if the AHJ has established a conveyance regulation program that is equal to or more stringent than that of OPS.
