Equipment Inspections

What you need to know

Your insurance policy entitles you to equipment inspections at no additional cost.

There are two types of equipment inspections – jurisdictional and loss prevention; and, if applicable, both may be conducted at the same time. Inspections are conducted by our trusted and experienced in-house team of inspectors and engineers, the largest of its kind in Canada.

Jurisdictional inspections – Why do you need one?

It’s the law. And you’re responsible. By law, periodic jurisdictional inspections of certain boilers and pressure vessels are required in some provinces in order to ensure safety. As a business owner, you are responsible for having this equipment inspected. Failure to do so can result in heavy penalties and may even lead to a shutdown of your operations.
