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 be available to provide you with timely service, OPS will provide regulated owners and operators with a 30-day extension to any compliance-related deadline that occurred in March or April of 2020.    

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.

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.

For questions related to Small Business assistance, visit the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade's website or call their hotline at 303-860-5881.  

The Conveyance portal is currently under maintenance.  Please reach out to the Division if you have any questions: 303-318-8528 or fill out this form.
