We are pleased to report that the CA Division of Occupational Safety and Health has given notice that it has formally withdrawn Circular Letter 11-01 in its entirety, effective immediately.


According to the Division, the Circular Letter was initially published because they had received inquiries regarding whether certain work on conveyances was covered by state law.  After receiving more information from the elevator industry they have decided that clarifications are more appropriately addressed through a formal rulemaking process.  We agree and applaud the Division for this decision and thank our colleagues in the elevator industry for their diligence.


There will be future efforts by the division regarding proper rule-making so this issue is likely to be revisited by year end.
