Annual Inspections


Annual inspections on bleachers and grandstands, is recommended by both the International Code Council’s standard, ICC 300-2012, and the National Fire Protection’s standard, NFPA-102. It might appear to be a costly endeavor to contract a professional to inspection their structures, but how important is the safety of the general public? In a recent case in which I provided services as an expert witness, the plaintiff had fallen backwards which caused considerable physical damage. At present, it is a matter of who pays, the manufacturer or the facility who maintains the bleachers.

Costly mistake that could have been prevented with annual inspections.
