There is no universal answer to this question. It depends on local codes and regulations and may be different for every jurisdiction.
However it is good practice to have at least one person within earshot of the boiler room, and if duties are extensive outside the boiler room, to have another person to handle those duties. Companies that recognize the value and contribution of a power engineer already know this. Many companies unfortunately see engineers as 'dead weight' and also unfortunate is that many engineers do nothing to dispel this.
Talk to your local Boiler Inspector...he/she will know.

: Is there usually one person on duty in a boilerroom or is a a common practice for saftey reasons to have 2 or more? Is there any codes to go by for this?
