When it comes to maintaining safety and risk at facilities, no two are exactly alike. Our three tiers of service ensure all of your needs are met from simple jurisdictional inspections to comprehensive safety audits.
Compliance is an ongoing need for every business and property owner. Trying to manage those inspections and deadlines, from local codes to State and Federal regulations, can be a tedious and confusing process. Insparisk offers a wide range of inspection services on equipment and systems such as boilers and elevators to ensure deadlines are met in a timely manner. Let us assist by identifying, educating and performing all compliance requirements placed upon your business or property.
Our National Board of Boiler & Pressure Vessel inspectors perform a thorough inspection of all criteria required by the local jurisdiction for your vessels, including the Department of Transportation.

Semi-Annuals/Periodic Inspections (Category 1)
Full Load Inspections (Category 5)
Maintenance Quality Audits
Emergency Power Tests
Capital Improvement Plans
Our certified inspectors provide Tank Tightness Testing which is required in the event of a failed or non-conclusive Statistical Inventory Reconciliation (SIR) report, as mandated by local, state or federal inspectors, or as required by the owner’s insurance company or bank.
Requirements for Tank Tightness Testing:
Maximum of 20,000 gallon capacity for each tank.
Maximum of 10,000 gallons of vapor space.
Minimum of 24 inches of product in each tank.
Minimum of 12 hours waiting period after fuel delivery.
The test typical takes 2-5 hours to complete from downtime to uptime.
Water for thousands of New York City buildings is kept in water storage tanks. The Health Code sets out requirements for maintaining the purity and sanitary condition of the City’s drinkable water supply. The Health Code requires that these tanks be inspected annually and that the person in control of a building serviced by a water storage tank keep copies of the inspection records and make them available to the Department upon request.
Insparisk is an Independent Inspection Agency (US DOT 2298394) authorized by the United States Department of Transportation to provide and/or oversee a variety of services covering intermodal portable tanks and cargo tank motor vehicles including:
External Visual Inspection
Internal Visual Inspection
Commercial businesses that use chemicals or detergents in their operation may be required to use a backflow preventer to ensure the public water supply is not compromised. They must also have it tested periodically. Our qualified technician will advise you of the findings and then complete and file the testing report with the appropriate governing body.
All fire extinguishers in a commercial or large multi-family residence must be inspected periodically. Our accredited professionals will inspect and tag the extinguishers per your local Fire Code requirements and advise if any units should be recharged or replaced.
Several jurisdictions now require large commercial and residential spaces benchmark their energy usage. This process examines the building layout and utility usage to “benchmark” the building against similar buildings. A score is then generated to let the owner know how efficiently (or inefficiently) the building is running. Our experts will gather all of the necessary building and utility data and then file the findings with the appropriate governing body.
A handful of jurisdictions now require that buildings over a certain height be inspected periodically to ensure there is no danger of falling bricks or debris on pedestrians below. Our licensed engineers will conduct a full review of the structure’s exterior to determine what, if any, hazards are present. Results will be documented in the appropriate reports and then filed with the jurisdiction. If items must be repaired, our engineers can also act as your “advocate” and be retained to ensure contractors are only doing necessary, quality work.
At its core, a building is nothing more than four walls. Those four walls only become a building when comfort systems are added to provide usefulness to its occupants. Those systems run the gamut from equipment like elevators and HVAC to safety components such as egress and fire code standards. Insparisk will help ensure you are operating with the highest levels of equipment standards, safety processes and safety protocols.
Maintaining a high level of safety at your building or facility is the greatest way to decrease exposure to liability and frivolous lawsuits. Savvy owners and facility managers enjoy peace of mind knowing this added layer of protection to advise them of any problems and correct them in order to keep their property and its inhabitants safe. Our safety inspections are available for all of the equipment listed above in “Compliance” and include all of the inspection criteria without having to file the results with the jurisdiction.
