The Boiler Inspection Program provides initial and periodic inspections of boilers of all sizes, types and pressures. Originated in 1953, The Boiler Inspection Program is responsible for the inspection and safe repair of boilers installed in public and commercial locations. Technical advice and engineering assistance is provided to installers, repair firms, operators and owner/users.
Nominal fees are collected to fund the inspection activity. Coordination of inspections with insurance companies allow qualified insurance company "special inspectors" to participate in making required inspections and prevent duplication of services.
There are 10,947 active boilers subject to regular inspection in the state, including 7,925 hot water heating boilers, 1,743 hot water supply boilers, 882 steam heating boilers, 349 power and process boilers, and 48 historical (hobby) boilers. Also included in the total are 285 boilers located on oil drilling rigs (as of June 6, 2014).
