The inspector of structural bolts has responsibilities in several areas of work. The inspector functions as an extension, or the eyes and ears, of the engineer of record. The inspector enforces standards and policy decisions made by the engineer; however, any highly technical evaluations and qualifications, should be taken to the site engineer for a decision. Below is a checklist of the inspector’s role in structural bolting. Note that some specifications described in the following content may not be the same as the specifications followed by your agency.
