About Us

Our History

Interact Inspection Corp. was founded in 1992 by Nick Keogh, former BC Safety Authority Inspector and Acting Director. With Nick’s extensive experience in elevator industry, along with CSA and NAESA memberships, Interact has conducted acceptance and periodic safety inspections of elevators, escalators, and other vertical transportation equipment, performed incident investigations, and consulted on safety related issues in areas where Certified Elevator Inspector Services were required but not available or where there were differences in legislation between Federal and Provincial areas of jurisdictions.

The ownership of Interact Inspection Corp. changed with Nick’s retirement in 2015. However, the overall objective of the company remains the same – acceptance and periodic safety inspections of elevating devices. The company also assists with new equipment design approval, consults on codes and regulations, and reviews vertical transportation equipment as an independent third-party inspection agency in various jurisdictions.

Moving forward, Interact Inspection Corp. continues to broaden its services based on the vast experience of the former and current members. With our personnel coming from different fields of expertise such as elevator technicians, inspectors, engineers and consultants, we pursue thoroughness, professional ethics, and safety-oriented approach.
