Last updated: June 5, 2017

What Does Technical Inspection Mean?

A technical inspection is used to verify compliance with technical specifications. The inspection may be conducted visually or specific instrumentation may be required in order to determine whether equipment or installations comply with the relevant technical specifications. The nature and extent of technical inspections is determined by the specific equipment or installations in question.

Safeopedia Explains Technical Inspection

Workplace safety officials are required by regulations to inspect equipment within specific schedules to ensure that workplace safety is optimised. These inspections range from the simple, visual inspection of ladders to ensure that there are no visible signs of wear, to schedules and checklists aimed at ensuring that more complex equipment like boilers or forklifts are in good working order. OSHA provides specifications, standards and checklists for various types of inspections, and records of all inspections should be kept.
