Unless you’ve been stuck in an elevator yourself, you probably don’t think much about the people behind the operation. Elevator inspectors make all of our lives easier by making sure its safe to skip the hike from floor 1 to floor 50. They ensure that elevators are compliant with safety codes, and they inspect it for any potential issues. Maybe you’ll notice the inspection sticker the next time you hop on one!
