Chapter 78 . Boiler and Pressure Vessel Construction Code
Section 300. Inspection, maintenance, and repair

8 AAC 78.300. Inspection, maintenance, and repair

(a) The operator of a tramway or the operator's designee shall give the tramway a daily operating test before a passenger is permitted to ride. The test must include the operation of controls, speed--governing devices, braking equipment, and other safety devices. Any condition discovered that poses a present danger must be corrected before a passenger is permitted to ride.

(b) Any condition found during an inspection that poses a present danger or is not in compliance with the manufacturer's specifications must be corrected before a passenger is permitted to ride.

(c) The operator shall maintain a permanent record of each inspection or repair made to a tramway and shall make the record available to the department, inspector, or tramway specialist upon request. Each manufacturer recommended non-destructive examination shall be performed as specified. All welding on steel components of a tramway shall be done according to the manufacturer's recommendations. The worker performing the welding must be certified in writing by an independent testing laboratory to be qualified to perform the required procedure to the standards contained in the American Welding Society Structural Welding Code.

(d) At any reasonable time, the department may inspect a tramway, and the operator shall assist with the inspection upon request. If the department issues an order under AS 05.20.030 (2) to prohibit the operation of a tramway, the operator shall immediately stop operation of the tramway. The department will issue a report to the owner or operator identifying the specific reason for closure and will tag the tramway as being out of service. The operator may not re-open the tramway to public use until the repairs or corrections are made and the department has approved its operation in writing.

(e) After accidental activation of a tramway's safety stop or gate, the operator or the operator's designee shall inspect the tramway to determine the cause. An unsafe condition identified during the inspection must be corrected before a passenger is permitted to ride, except that operation of a tramway is permitted in order to unload passengers. A safety or automatic stopping device that allows an automatic restart of a tramway may not be installed.
