We Protect the Public and the Environment.

The Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS) regulates those who own or operate amusement rides and devices, commercial boilers, conveyances (elevators and escalators) and retail fueling facilities and those who are permitted to use high explosives.


Due to concerns related to COVID-19, the Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS) is taking precautions to protect the health and safety of our customers and our employees.  While OPS remains open for business, we encourage you to utilize our online, email and telephone services as much as possible to minimize social contact.  

Understanding that your contractors, consultants and third party inspectors may not have been available to provide you with timely service, OPS provided regulated owners and operators with extensions to any compliance-related deadline that occurred in March or April of 2020.  Beginning in May 2020, OPS will consider case-by-case extensions to compliance deadlines if necessary due to the COVID-19 situation.  Please contact your OPS program representative if you need to discuss deadlines and extensions.

As many of our staff will be working remotely over the next few weeks, there may be slight delays to our normal response times.  If you are experiencing a delay in response time, please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your patience.

Check out our COVID-19 FAQ list for answers to our common questions. 

In the event of a station closure, here are the Unattended Fueling Requirements that you will need to meet in order to continue selling fuel with no attendants.
