The boiler room log lists boiler operation data that can be used to increase boiler safety and efficiency as well as identifying a potential malfunction. 8- A boiler room log is used to record information regarding operation of the boiler during a given period of time. The number and frequency of the checks to be performed depend on the plant.
Occupational risks hazard identification is an early step that must be considered by the company. The purpose of the study is to determine the type of hazard, risk assessments based on sources hazard and risk assessment based on the types of hazards in the boiler division.

potential to create a hazard. II. Stacks and Ductwork Stacks and duct work used to direct the flue gas out of the boiler room can have a major impact on the successful operation of the boiler, and indirectly, the safety of the boiler operation. The National Fuel Code (NFPA54/ANSI Z223.1) covers this area in
