The condition of equipment and machinery can rarely be determined by casual inspection and can have major impacts on business operations when malfunctions or property losses occur. ER performs in-depth mechanical inspections to aid risk management, asset valuation, and disaster recovery.
ER’s equipment reports are used in pre-loss situations for disaster planning, wear and tear evaluation, and repair/replacement cost determination.
Following a loss, inspection of equipment is critical given the risks that can develop after the initial loss event. Inadequate response procedures often leave assets susceptible to secondary damage from corrosion, contamination, and unstable environments.
Post-loss equipment reports can help settle claims by separating new damage from existing conditions, determining the origin of the loss, and analyzing extenuating factors such as improper installation, lack of maintenance, abnormal wear, and equipment malfunction.
