In 2010, a semi-submersible offshore drilling rig, otherwise known as Deepwater Horizon, exploded, killing 11 men and causing the largest oil spill in U.S. waters. This mobile drilling unit was designed to drill subsea wells for oil exploration and production. When it exploded on April 20 and sank to the bottom of the ocean two days later, the investigation into the cause led investigators to find the lack of inspections and tests. This could easily happen to any industrial business.
No matter how strong you think your welds are or how well your machines work, they must be inspected and tested frequently to have 100% quality control and to meet industry standards and codes. One loose weld or one small failure can not only hurt your business exceptionally but can put lives in fatal danger.
You don’t want just anyone inspecting your industrial machines, however. In addition to the importance of getting inspections, it is just as important to have a qualified man or woman to inspect your machines. When it comes to hiring an inspector, you will want to make sure they are licensed and certified to get the job done and to get the job done right the first time.
At CODE STEEL, our team of men and women are licensed and certified to inspect all industrial machines. If you are in need of industrial inspections, call us today to set up an appointment, and we would be more than happy to serve you.
Don’t wait, call now before it’s too late.
