Second shutoff for boiler on stairs?

ChrisJChrisJ Member Posts: 6,737
So my wife accidently shut the boiler off again instead of the basement lights.  This has only happened a few times but it is really annoying. 

I want to remove the switch and put a blank plate but I want to make sure Its not violating code if I do.  I recall a few saying having the switch there for a gas burner may actually be against code in some areas but I want to make sure I am remembering correctly.  I of course have a shutoff right on the side of the boiler.\

If you even insult my steam system in a dream, you better wake up and apologize ò¿ó
