Types of inspections
There are two main types of asset condition inspections.
- Defect / hazard inspections designed to determine the need for maintenance and/or temporary works.
- More detailed overall asset condition inspections designed to assess the overall condition of an asset and determine its remaining useful life.
Defect / hazard inspections are typically carried out on a more frequent basis than overall asset condition inspections, but in both cases the inspection frequency may depend on the classification of the asset within a hierarchy.
