Jurisdictional inspection services

Hartford Steam Boiler (HSB) provides jurisdictional inspections of boilers and pressure vessels as a built-in benefit of all our Equipment Breakdown coverage programs. Virtually all states and cities have requirements for the periodic inspection of boilers and pressure vessels. Codes vary from state to state; but generally boilers and other pressure equipment must be inspected by commissioned inspectors at specified intervals for continued operation. These requirements make the business owner responsible for inspection compliance. Helping insureds meet these inspection obligations is part of Hartford Steam Boilers' value.

HSB takes these inspections seriously because we understand the destructive potential of boilers and pressure vessels. Combining the inspection of boilers and pressure vessels with an insurance contract was the founding principle of HSB's business.

As part of our Equipment Breakdown insurance programs we:

  • Proactively identify insureds that have jurisdictional inspection services requirements;
  • Schedule and perform boiler and pressure vessel certificate inspections in accordance with state or municipal jurisdictional requirements;
  • Provide recommendations where hazardous conditions are noted;
  • Offer advice to improve equipment operation, maintenance and reliability.

HSB has a national network of inspectors who hold National Board certification and are also licensed by local jurisdictions where they work. HSB inspectors work closely with insureds to help them keep their pressure equipment in compliance with code.

As the largest insurer of machinery and equipment in the U.S., we can handle the inspection requirements of any class of business, whether it is a laundry or a large manufacturing plant. Meeting local jurisdictional inspection requirements is important as state or local authorities can fine businesses that don't comply and can even shut down operations.
