There are no regulations or Codes that dictate how many boiler/turbine operators must be present. First, check with the jurisdiction(state) where you are located and possibly the city where you are located. If there are no state or municipal laws, I hope your company uses good judgement. Also, check with your insurance carrier. Your plant is not a tinker toy. Whether the company downsizes or not, you have high pressure boilers/turbines in operation and safety MUST be top priority. If, in fact the company does reduce to one boiler, I would recommend a minimum of 2 operators, 24 hours a day. Remember, there are only two things that can happen, something or nothing. If the boiler(s) are un-attended, eventually something will happen and then the finger pointing starts.
