How do you know what you have, what needs to be inspected and what needs to be repaired if you don’t have a policy or procedure to follow, that will take you from inspection to information gathering and finally to repairs where required that meet current codes, standards and regulations. This White Paper will also touch on the importance or record keeping, inspections, codes and standards, your responsibilities for inspections, preventative maintenance, as well as risk management and loss prevention programs.
