As part of our commitment to safety and professionalism on our jobsites, PWSA recently held annual Construction Inspector Training for all Construction Inspector Consultants who oversee our project sites. A Construction Inspector Consultant is a member of a project team – independent of the utility and construction firm – responsible for ensuring safety and compliance during construction. They familiarize themselves with the project documents and industry standards for safe construction sites to ensure projects are implemented correctly.
This training involved instruction for those working on water, sewer, green stormwater infrastructure, catch basin installation, and paving and asphalt jobs. There were additional breakout sessions for Inspectors who manage projects involving lead service line replacement, as PWSA has strict and specific standards for how this work is conducted. Some of the topics presented included compliance and ethics, safety, and field data entry.
