JSG Professional Services ULC
The Activity Inspector plays a leading role in ensuring that construction and installation of the Pipeline Project is carried out correctly and that all construction activities comply with the undertakings to which JSG Professional Services ULC and the Inspectors are committed. The intent of all the inspection activities is to monitor, control, and ensure the minimization of construction practices or procedures which could have adverse effects on the safety of the work areas, the environment, or the final technical performance requirements of the pipeline system. This involves foresight and quick communicative action by all of the Inspectors involved. Such action must be conveyed to the Inspector’s immediate supervisor and also to the Contractor’s immediate supervisor on-site. The recognition of the need for early implementation of mitigation and corrective measures is a key function and responsibility of all Inspectors.
All Activity Inspectors will report directly to the Chief Inspector, although daily instructions will be through the Assistant Chief Inspector, if applicable. They will also have direct contact with the Field Engineers, QA/ QC Advisors, Safety Advisors, Environmental Advisors, and the Survey Coordinator for appropriate input from these disciplines.
Pre-Construction Input & Preparation
Prior to the commencement of the construction activities and during the orientation process, all Inspectors will be thoroughly briefed on their duties and responsibilities and on the environmental, safety, and technical requirements associated with each activity.
Prior to commencement of construction activities, each Inspector will meet with their respective Contractor’s Foreman / Crew and review materials, equipment and procedural requirements along with the acceptance critical of the activity.
Monitoring of Contractor Performance During Construction
Each Inspector will prepare the necessary daily reports for his specific activity, upon which they will record: particular problems, general comments relating to the work, quantity of manpower and equipment, conditions of equipment, weather conditions, progress obtained, and Construction Contractor’s attitude toward the work as it affects quality. If an Inspector is monitoring more than one activity, they shall prepare an Activity Report for each respective activity.
All Activity Inspectors will be expected to display effective communication skills and be prepared to develop a rapport with: other Activity Inspectors, the Construction Contractor’s personnel and the public, the Field Engineer, Safety Advisor, Environmental Advisor, QA/AC Advisor, Office Manager, the Construction Manager, and “Owners” representatives.
Activity Inspectors shall supply, use and wear all necessary protective equipment and clothing as required by government regulations and company policy.
All Activity Inspectors will ensure that they have the necessary tools and equipment readily available to check and test quantities, lengths, diameters, thicknesses, pressures, and other items affecting the quality of construction, where appropriate, to their monitoring function. Consultants may be employed from time-to-time to provide specialized inspection tests.
All Activity Inspectors will have the authority to prevent work from continuing when a significant non-compliance has occurred. If the non-compliance is not life threatening or detrimental to the environment, the Activity Inspector will contact the Chief Inspector or the Assistant Chief Inspector immediately to confirm course of action. If the situation is life threatening, the Inspector shall request the Construction Contractor to stop work, and then contact the Chief Inspector or the Assistant Chief Inspector for follow-up action. The Safety Advisor or Environmental Advisor shall be contacted if the non-compliance relates to either safety or environmental matters.
All Activity Inspectors are responsible to ensure all aspects of the Project Safety Plan are complied with. Each Activity Inspector is responsible to ensure compliance of all personnel involved in the Activity(s) he/she is assigned with respect to Safety, Environment and QA/QC.
Through each individual’s past experience and the orientation procedures, each Inspector will be thoroughly familiar with his or her assigned area of responsibility, including the specifications and Contract Documents and any special, local, municipal, or regional requirements. The effectiveness of the inspection program is contingent on good communication between the Inspection team’s representatives and the Construction Contractor. Verbal and written reporting will be used as methods of communicating and both will be employed on a daily basis.
Each Inspector will have his or her own duties and responsibilities; however, the cross- communication for related and sequential activities of the entire construction function is essential to minimize conflicts arising between phases of construction. Each Inspector will report both quality and progress of the WORK on the applicable daily report form.
