- Annual Safety Inspections
Beyond being a generally good idea for safety, annual safety inspections are mandated by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) Standards 86 for Ovens and Furnaces (Sections 7.5.16 and 7.5.17 specifically). Furthermore, many customers appreciate having “outside eyes” on their equipment at least once a year in order to bring to their attention items that might not be considered best practices or to identify other opportunities for improvement. A final advantage is that many insurance companies appreciate the inspections and these can be used as evidence of due diligence on the part of the operator as well as potentially lessening rates or rate hikes.
