Why is scheduling inspections so hard?

So, why is scheduling inspections so hard?  I ask myself and Tim, our Senior Inspector this question.  Steel mill scheduling is like pulling teeth.  I understand shut down and the need to not interrupt production, which we try never to do.  But, these other manufacturers of misc.???  Who doesn't know they need inspections?  Who doesn't know that inspections are required...not just by law, but in order to continue safe use of all your devices? 


I know most understand the needs and requirements.  So, I am thinking budgets, shut downs, etc are the only thing holding things up. 


Just to set things straight on shut downs:  we don't require shut downs to do inspections and we almost never interrupt production.  This is one of our promises to our customers, to not stop or slow down production. 


As the economy picks up, as President Obama smooths out America, I'm sure budget and some other hold ups will change, too.


I look forward to all your comments here.  Also, please check out our forums, join and comment there, too.  We are excited to offer expert information pertinent to all your lifting devices.


Have a safe and happy day!:)
