Presentation Overview:

Until recently, use of Remote Inspections (RI) was limited and sporadic.  The current pandemic and remote work conditions combined with a normally extensive workload have thrust RI into the minds of authorities having jurisdiction everywhere.  This presentation will cover NFPA 915 – Standard for Remote Inspections and will demonstrate potentially effective alternative means for building inspection and enabling one or more parties to remotely perform an inspection of a building or building component. Items covered will be the minimum requirements for the procedures, methods, and documentation associated with RI’s. This includes the provision for RI’s to deliver equivalent or improved results than would be achieved with other inspection methods.
