Boiler Safety

Did you know that potential danger can be lurking in your neighborhood, schools and shopping centers? High pressure boilers (those carrying more than 15 pounds of pressure per square inch) are used in laundries, dry cleaners, hotels, and schools, as well as in manufacturing facilities. A faulty boiler, or one improperly operated, has the capacity to explode in the same manner as a small bomb!

West Virginia Code §21-3-7 gives authority for the Division of Labor to inspect boilers annually.  The Division of Labor provides oversight to the numerous insurance inspectors authorized to inspect boilers in West Virginia.
