Reasons for Inspection
Inspection Services cover a wide variety of business sectors, which require inspection for a variety of reasons, such as:
Industrial Inspection - to ensure equipment and facilities are to customer specification.
Regulatory Compliance - to ensure, for example lifting equipment is fit for purpose and safe to use;
Insurance Compliance - to ensure that the insurance cover is valid, by the demonstration of equipment being regularly maintained and/or examined, to minimize the Risk of Liability;
Business Continuity - to ensure vital operational equipment remains safe and effective to ensure the smooth and uninterupted service, for production by effective ongoing preventative programme.
