Technical inspection is an examination of a product, process, service, or installation or their design and determination of its conformity with specific requirements or, on the basis of professional judgment, with general requirements.
All construction projects must follow a set of standards. Civil inspectors make sure those standards are being met through performing quality assurance checks. They also must examine proposed plans, along with social and economic effects of a construction project. In many parts of the world, they are also known as building inspectors.
Electrical inspectors make sure that the all of the electrical standards are met through consulting the electrical codes and international standards. For example, wiring and electrical components of a building must meet the designated safety codes. Not only must they recognize problems with electrical systems, but they also must provide instructions on how to correct electrical systems that do not meet safety codes.
Mechanical inspectors examine commercial and industrial machines and related components to make sure that proper safety codes are being met. Many mechanical inspectors work in manufacturing using specialized tools testing the quality of products. These products can include: heating and cooling equipment, piping, tanks, and etc.
Non-destructive testing (NDT) inspectors examine structural and systems components to make sure they are functioning effectively and are without defects. Normally these are areas which are neither easily assessable nor visible. NDT inspection is becoming more and more common because it provides a balance between cost effectiveness and quality control, without causing damage to the materials being inspected.
Welding is an integral part of many industries. If an industrial product is manufactured with poor welding, the result could cause a major accident. That’s why it’s important for welding inspectors to routinely check welding quality. It is also to ensure that all health and safety standards are followed while a weld is being performed.
