and materials meets the requirements in the plans and
specifications. The responsibility for quality
construction rests with the crew leader and the chain of
command. The quality control division of the
operations department is responsible for conducting
tests and inspections to ensure compliance with the
plans and specifications.
QUALITY CONTROL PLAN
The crew leader must develop and implement an
aggressive quality control (QC) plan. The crew leader
must plan quality into the project and avoid
discrepancies. The development of the QC plan can be
broken down into the following steps:
Establish quality measures by reviewing the
plans and specifications and identifying the quality
criteria with which you must comply. The project QC
plan should include a list of checks, inspections, and
tests. You also need to address special requirements,
such as training, hazardous material, or personnel safety
pro-tection. See figures 1-13 and 1-14 for examples of
QC planning guides.
Select construction methods that are safe and
of high quality. You need to determine construction
methods very early in the planning stage of the project,
as they impact on equipment, tools, material, labor,
training, and safety requirements. Discuss construc-
tion methods with your crew, supervisors, and the QC
Identify required training and equipment If
specialized training or qualifications are needed, you
must make sure they are met. Use the resources that are
available to you, and remember that projects are
intended as training for your people. Teaching your
crew the proper construction methods and techniques
should be high on your priority list.
Ensure personnel awareness. To perform the
work satisfactorily, the crew must understand the
quality measures. Before beginning work on an activity,
you should brief all crew members about critical
measurements, inspection items, potential problems,
and each members responsibility for quality.
Evaluation of work completed is recorded on a
Daily QC Inspectors Report shown in figure 1-15. The
purpose of this report is to document that the required
checks, tests, and inspections were accomplished, and
work is being performed according to specifications.
