GreenWorks Quality Control
Although Quality Control is used throughout all stages of a building project, its main relevance is in the engineering and construction phases.
Efficient design, development, servicing, and management are essential to quality of service. The use of inspection checklists are important for quality control needs; they can be standardized to include quality concerns that will be passed on to all parties involved in the inspection.
The Job Of A Quality Control Inspector
Quality Control inspections are performed by inspectors who serve as the eyes and ears of upper management. The inspector will mark items for repair or rejection and then categorize the defects in order of severity.
Critical– These are defects that usually present a safety hazard.
Major– These are defects that do not pose a major threat. However, they do not meet the passing requirements.
Minor– These are defects that may only be found in small quantities and should not affect the consumer.
When serious problems arise, it is the inspector’s job to inform a project supervisor.
