Inspecting

Inspections are carried out to ensure the quality of work is carried out to the highest of standards, and this includes checklists, photographs, and all other relevant paperwork.

Our teams are consistently assessed to ensure risk assessments are carried out, procedures are being followed and that any training requirements are met and fulfilled.

IQA also carry out ‘in progress’ quality of works inspections for longer term contracts, e.g. CDM  projects or multi-utility sites, this involves a 3-stage audit process: containment stage, wiring stage and access stage. This allows for any required improvements to be identified, reported and rectified, which is necessary before the project can be ‘shutdown’ and ‘signed off’.

Samples of each stage across the entire project will be checked and, once the project is deemed ‘complete’, IQA will carry out a full complete inspection. Should any non-conformance be identified, IQA requests ‘verification’ and all non-conformances are revisited and checked prior to sign off.

SHE Inspections, competence reviews and compliance questionnaires are used to ensure that all our operatives’ training and authorisations are up to date and tracked on our internal management system. If at any stage gaps are identified a training plan will be implemented.

IQA expects the very best from our people and quality of work - we place great importance on full audit trails for quality, H&S and compliance.
