Amir Atlasbaf is a Mechanical, NDT and Pressure Equipment Specialist and is the latest NECIT inspector to take our rapid fire ‘Meet the Inspector’ Q&A.
I have 24 years’ experience working as an inspector since 1996.
I mainly specialise in Mechanical, NDT and Pressure Equipment Directive type Inspections.
Inspectors need to ensure that all products or equipment meet client requirements, if the client is happy and satisfied with the inspection, then this motivates me to continue to provide a top quality service in every project I am involved with. Customer satisfaction is something I take a great deal of pride in.
For me, being challenged is what I find most interesting about carrying out inspections. For example, inspecting Subsea Equipment could be challenging as the inspector will need to be certain everything fits quality standards and requirements, otherwise there is a high chance the equipment will fail once it has been installed below sea level. It will then be very difficult to rectify this problem.
Inspectors play a vital role in preventing accidents, equipment failure and huge costs as a result. Engineering inspections help make procurement smarter, more reliable and allow for project execution to be carried out smoothly.
I think someone with an Engineering background with relevant experience and qualifications will help them towards becoming a top quality inspector. Also, someone who is always willing to learn and develop to the changing world of inspection services is important.
Every project I work on with the NECIT team is interesting in my eyes, but in particular it would be the inspections of Subsea equipment.
I always feel part of the team and feel valued as an inspector by everyone and I always receive superb support and communication from the NECIT coordinators in every project. Their attention to detail is something which helps me develop as an inspector and it is something I am grateful for.
