There has been a marked increase in the number of unmanned boilers, mainly due to improvements in the reliability of control systems.
Managers of workplaces have a duty to manage the risks associated with that workplace. If there is a boiler installed on the premises, you must ensure it remains safe.
What do I need to do?
As detailed in the INDG436 leaflet, you need to determine if the risks from your boiler are at acceptable levels or if any additional measures are required to achieve this.
This will require a systematic assessment of any risks and the control measures in place to address them.
A risk assessment does not need to include excessive detail; but the findings and actions taken should be recorded. In some cases, you may need to contact the manufacturer, installer or other experts for the required information to complete the assessment.
INDG436: A guide for owners, managers and supervisors of boilers, boiler houses and boiler plant
This leaflet provides basic advice on the risks and regulatory requirements for the operation of steam boilers. It sets out the general principles of boiler safety for people with limited technical knowledge of boilers, such as owners, managers and supervisors, who do not have access to industry guidance.
