How we make pressure vessel certification easy.

How it works

What happens when we receive your enquiry about pressure vessel inspection? Where do we go from there? This is how it all works:

Confirmation of enquiry received.

  • You get a unique pressure vessel inspection quotation file number. We’ll use this as a reference in all communications with you from now on until the order is placed.
  • We save all quotations including those from trusted contractors who will perform extra services to help you in the file.
  • We submit all the details including those of outside contractors so that you can ask any questions that may arise.

On site visit

  • When necessary, we will visit your site to confirm exactly what the process will entail.
  • We will make all the necessary appointments, and will submit the projected costs you will have to cover in advance.

Pre-inspection actions

  • We send a reminder three weeks from the date of your receiving the quote. This helps us to know whether you are still interested in using our services.
  • When you place an order, your quotation file number is replaced with a job number.
  • We co-ordinate the process together with any outside contractors that must participate in order to provide you with a complete, legally compliant inspection.

External and internal inspection

  • Your order is executed quickly, efficiently and neatly.
  • When necessary, we orchestrate your inspection with external contractors who help with those parts of the service that we are not permitted to cover.

Legal compliance records

  • We leave you in possession of all the documents you need to show that a OHS/Mines Act compliant pressure vessel testing service has been completed.

Legal compliance records

  • We hand over a manually written invoice and create an electronic copy.
  • Payment is expected within the specified time according to our terms of service.

Our Obligation To You

We work within your procedural framework. If you require vendor registration and issue vendor numbers, we will follow the required process, informing you of the full scope of our services so that your company can allocate matching material numbers for such items as:

  • Pressure testing vessels;
  • Pressure vessel inspections
  • Other pressure vessel-related services

Naturally, you will require a process to be followed thereafter, and that begins with your Request For Quotation (RFQ). We will process your request efficiently, attend site meetings, and return the necessary information on or before your stipulated due date.

Your Pressure Vessel Inspection or Pressure Vessel Preparation RFQ

Once we have completed your procedure for vendor registration and have received vendor registration and specific service (materials) provider numbers, we are ready to prepare your quotation on request.

We understand and acknowledge that we will take full responsibility for performance of third party AIA Inspection Services.

Your Site Meeting

We will undertake to be present at your site meeting to receive your full briefing regarding pressure vessel inspection at the appointed time and venue. Should you provide us with documentation detailing the extent and scope of work that is to be performed, we will duly be prepared to answer any questions you may have regarding our approach to the task at hand.

The briefing

Large concerns with complex plants are generally fully aware of what is required from us, and will stipulate this in detail including:

  • Required pressure vessel testing procedures
  • Detailed instructions regarding the handling of specific pressure vessels
  • Safety requirements and concerns

Occasionally, smaller firms, though aware of the need for pressure vessel testing and inspection for OHSA compliance, will not know how to proceed with the full briefing.

However, our many years of experience in the pressure vessel industry will equip us to extract the required information that will formulate your quotation and govern your pressure vessel inspection procedure so that it can be carried out safely and in full compliance with the law.

Your Pre-Inspection Form Quotation

Using our notes and your data from the site meeting, we compile a pre-inspection form indicating all the necessary tasks, and this is used to compile your comprehensive quotation when we return to our offices.

Should we be awarded the contract for pressure vessel inspection and certification, we are once again at your disposal for any final briefing you may wish to conduct prior to the inspection itself.

Safety is Second Nature to Us

Workplace safety is a hugely important aspect of work in today’s industries. You may be sure that if there is an incident or accident, an exhaustive investigation will be carried out. Will your company be able to stand up to scrutiny?

When it comes to pressure vessel inspection, we have everything you need to get the job done with minimal to no intervention on your part. A customized safety file will be created relating specifically to your pressure vessel inspection process.

This will include:

  • Your permit authorizing us to work on your premises
  • Site meeting and site establishment minutes
  • Our procedures including identification, license, plant cards, up to date medical reports, etc.
  • Hazardous Investigation and Risk Assessment (HIRA)
  • Safe work procedure planning documents including aspects such as fall protection plan, etc.
  • Our specific emergency plan
  • Registry of tools
  • Notification of construction work including planned use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Copies of any site-specific safety training completed
  • Conducting, recording and logging safety meetings
  • Your acceptance and approval of completed work

Although we may often feel that today’s safety requirements and the completion of supporting documentation are onerous, we all understand the need to prove that we have done everything in our power to protect personnel working in hazardous circumstances.

You may be confident that we will ensure that every aspect is addressed in your safety file, allowing you to contract us with absolute confidence.

Although we strive to keep all the relevant training we must undergo in order to complete our work within legal frameworks up to date, we are also willing to attend further training should it be required in your specific circumstances.

Rely on us for absolute safety and meticulous record-keeping. Safety and legal compliance are second nature to us!
