"Moving the Elevator Branch services online is part of the Abercrombie Administration's efforts to provide more convenient services to the public and to transform the way government operates."

Applicants can go to http://hiosh.ehawaii.gov/hip to complete the digital form by entering all the necessary information and attach installation plans for review. After completing the payment, the submitter will receive an email containing a copy of the application and a payment receipt.
