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 the OPS Boiler Program 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.
The Boiler Inspection Program enforces nationally adopted standards governing the installation, operation, maintenance and repair of boilers and some pressure vessels in commercial and public buildings. Periodic inspections are performed by State Inspectors or by special (insurance company) inspectors commissioned by the Boiler Inspection Program. Inspections are performed to verify compliance with the established safety requirements. The Boiler Inspection Program was implemented to ensure safety because boilers can explode, causing property damage, injuries and deaths.
