November 13-17 is Elevator Escalator Safety Awareness Week

Governor Hickenlooper has signed a proclamation to commemorate Elevator Escalator Safety Awareness Week in Colorado. View the proclamation below.

The OPS Conveyance Program works to protect the riding public and industry personnel in the State of Colorado from the hazards of dangerous conveyances. We delegate authority to jurisdictions who maintain the same (or more stringent) standards that are in the Colorado Conveyance Regulations. We also license contractors and inspectors who work on conveyances.

On November 15, we are partnering with Denver International Airport and the City and County of Denver Fire Department's Conveyance Program to share elevator and escalator tips with people at the airport.
