The boiler regulations enacted in 1982 also include the requirement for inspection of domestic hot water heaters located in city, county or state facilities. This change was the result of the tragic deaths of six children and one teacher who were killed when a hot water heater exploded in the Star Elementary School cafeteria in Oklahoma City.
In all, the Oklahoma Department of Labor has jurisdiction to inspect almost 20,000 hot water heaters. Of these, approximately 9,000 hot water heaters are inspected annually.
