What is a Remote Inspection?

A remote inspection is conducted using media gathered and submitted by the client (typically photographs and video). Without the need for travel or disruption to the client’s operation, our auditors are able to spend more time inspecting the space and generating actionable solutions for your business. In turn, we can offer a substantially reduced rate compared to a typical onsite inspection.

How it Works:

  1. We reach out to provide specific instructions for preparing for the remote inspection

  2. You complete the pre-inspection instructions. it typically takes about 20 minutes and requires nothing more than your phone

  3. One of our certified consultants will access the media and conduct the remote inspection

  4. You receive our deliverables for review

  5. Schedule a remote consultation with one of our team members to review the report and answer any questions you have

What are the deliverables?

You will receive a written inspection report, including the following components.

  • An assessment of possible hazards, violations and the corresponding applicable code citation

  • Recommended action steps, listed by priority level.

  • Annotated photos and code citations — so you know exactly what to address
