High-Pressure Steam Boiler Safety

Did you know that potential danger can be lurking in your neighborhood, schools and shopping centers? High-Pressure Steam 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 High-Pressure Steam Boiler, or one improperly operated, has the capacity to explode in the same manner as a small bomb.
West Virginia Code ยง21-3-7 gives authority for the Division of Labor to inspect High-Pressure Steam Boilers annually. The Division of Labor provides oversight to the numerous insurance inspectors authorized to inspect High-Pressure Steam Boilers in West Virginia.
