The role would certainly include leading a team of Welding Inspectors, who will look to the Senior Welding Inspector for guidance, especially on technical subjects. The Senior Welding Inspector will be expected to give advice, resolve problems, take decisions and generally lead from the front, sometimes in difficult situations. The attributes required by the Senior Welding Inspector are varied and the emphasis on certain attributes and skills may differ from project to project. Essentially though the Senior Welding Inspector will require leadership skills, technical skills and experience.
Practical application and experience play a major part in the development of leadership skills and the Senior Welding Inspector should strive to improve and fine tune these skills at every opportunity. Willingness and ability to accept instructions or orders from senior staff and to act in the manner prescribed.
Willingness and ability to give orders in a clear and concise manner, whether verbal or written, which will leave the recipient in no doubt as to what action or actions are required. Willingness to take responsibility, particularly when things go wrong, perhaps due to the Senior Welding Inspectors direction, or lack of it.
Capacity to listen the basis for good communication skills if and when explanations are necessary and to provide constructive reasoning and advice. Willingness to delegate responsibility to allow staff to get on with the job and to trust them to act in a professional manner. The Senior Welding Inspector should, wherever possible, stay in the background, managing.
Willingness and ability to support members of the team on technical and administrative issues. Normative documents. Knowledge of quality assurance and quality control. Sound appreciation of the four commonly used non-destructive testing methods. Basic understanding of steel metallurgy for commonly welded materials and the application of this understanding to the assessment of fracture surfaces. Assessment of non-destructive test reports, particularly the interpretation of radiographs.
Specified normative documents specifications, standards, codes of practice, etc should be available at the workplace and the Senior Welding Inspector would be expected to read, understand and apply the requirements with the necessary level of precision and direction required. The Senior Welding Inspector should be aware of the more widely used standards as applied in welding and fabrication.
For example:. Assessment of suitable personnel may require consideration of their technical, physical and mental abilities in order to ensure that they are able to perform the tasks required of them. Other considerations would include availability of inspection personnel at the time required, levels of supervision and the monitoring of the inspectors activities form start to contract completion. He will have to liaise with customer representatives, sub-contractors and third party Inspectors.
He may have to investigate non-compliances, deal with matters of discipline as well as personal matters of his staff.
Among them would be:. What skills are definitely required for the work and what additional ones would be desirable? Are particular qualifications needed? Is experience of similar work desirable?
What physical attributes are needed? Is the work local, in-shop, on-site, in a third world country? Does the job require working unsociable hours being away from home for long periods? Is the job for permanent staff or for a fixed term? If overseas what are the leave and travel arrangements? What is the likely salary? During subsequent interviews the SWI will need to assess other aspects of the candidates suitability:.
Has he the ability to work on his own initiative? Can he work as part of a team? If overseas has the person been to a similar location? Low morale can lead to among other things, poor productivity, less good workmanship, lack of diligence, taking short cuts, ignoring safety procedures and higher levels of absenteeism. The SWI needs to be able to recognise these signs and others such as personnel not starting work promptly, taking longer breaks, talking in groups and grumbling about minor matters.
His own demeanour does he have drive and enthusiasm or is he seen to have no energy and generally depressed. The workforce will react accordingly. Is he seen to be leading from the front in a fair and consistent manner? Favouritism in the treatment of staff, on disciplinary matters, the allocation of work, allotment of overtime, weekend working and holidays are common causes of problems.
Keep them informed in all aspects of the job and their situation. Rumours of impending redundancies or cuts in allowances etc will not make for good morale. The SWI must have a good understanding of these requirements and be able to apply them in a fair and equitable manner. He must have a clear understanding as to the limits of his authority knowing how far he can go in disciplinary proceedings. The quiet word. Formal verbal warning.
Written warning. Possible demotion, transfer, suspension. Dismissal with notice. Instant dismissal. Usually after the written warning stage the matter will be handled by the Companys Personnel or Human Resources Department. It is of vital importance that the company rules are rigorously followed as any deviation could result in claims for unfair or constructive dismissal.
Act promptly. Mean what he says. Treat everyone fairly and as an adult. Avoid constant complaining on petty issues. Where there are serious breaches of company rules by one or two people the rest of the workforce should be informed of the matter so that rumour and counter-rumours can be quashed. Some matters of discipline may well arise because of incorrect working practices, passing off below quality work, signing for work which has not been done, etc. First establish the facts by interviewing staff, from the relevant records, by having rechecks on part of the job.
If the personnel are employed by a sub-contractor then a meeting with the sub-contractor will be needed to achieve the same end. Find out the extent of the problem, is it localised or widespread? Is there need to inform the customer and third party inspector? Formulate a plan of action, with other company departments where necessary, to retrieve the situation.
Carry out the necessary disciplinary measures on the personnel involved. Convene a meeting with the rest of the workforce to inform them of the situation and ensure that any similar lapses will be dealt with severely. Follow up the meeting with a written memo. Every Senior Welding Inspector will have personal skills and attributes which can be brought to the job, some of the skills identified above may already have been mastered or understood.
The important thing for the individual to recognise is not only do they have unique abilities which they can bring to the role, but they also need to strive to be the best they can by strengthening identifiable weak areas in their knowledge and understanding. Embracing facts and realities. Being creative.
Being interested in solving problems. Being pro-active not reactive. Having empathy with other people. Having personal values. Being objective. This section introduces typical joint geometries involved in joining plates together and describes the types of weld used in these joint configurations with typical features of butt and fillet welds described.
For the structure to function loads must be transferred from one plate to another and the features of welds that enable them to transmit loads are described. Finally, some examples of good and bad design practice are given. A weld made between two faces that are approximately at right angles to each other is known as a fillet weld. For simplicity these diagrams show an arc welding process that deposits filler weld metal in a single weld pass.
Typical features of a butt weld are shown in Figure 2. The weld or weld metal refers to all the material that has melted and re- solidified.
CSWIP 3.2 Preparation Course Material
Check course schedule. It is essential that you have a knowledge of the subjects covered in the CSWIP Welding Inspector course before joining this senior welding inspector course. It is also advised that you do some home preparation ahead of this course as it covers a wide range of subject matter. This course will teach you about QA and QC as well as destructive testing, heat treatments, welding procedures, welding dissimilar and residual stress and distortion. The programme will also cover weldability, weld fractures, weld repairs, welding consumables, and welding symbols.
