Where I come from…** GROSS NEGLIGENCE and WILLFUL MISCONDUCT!**
My point is not actually these small details of the SOP that seem “in need of tweeking” IMHO. Such as…
2.10. Doors, Windows & Interior
I. The inspector shall:
E. and report as in need of repair any installed electronic sensors
that are not operable or not installed at proper heights above
the garage door;
Sensors should not be installed ABOVE the garage door. Correction to the SOP is obviously needed here.
**The main point for me is: **
I’m doing what I believe we all should be doing. Evaluating and scrutinizing the SOP that is designed to assist us in our profession. I bet most of us have not even read the SOP in detail (and with a little devil’s advocate inside us).
I encourage all inspectors to:
Once a year - take a look at the SOP, and ask “Is this the best? Can this be improved? Is there something missing? Should it be written differently?”
I’m just trying to “sharpen the iron.”
