Understanding About Checklist

There was one search on this site; it appeared to be like this “Definition of Checklist and How to build.” Let us give a response for that search by making a post for that alone, it may have been a kind of request.

I am going to give a definition and ways on how to build a checklist and I am going to show also the sample checklist. But first, let me give a definition of Checklist.

Checklist Definition
The checklist is a list of items to be noted or checked in a completed part of activity. It is always attached with the Inspection Request (IR) to be signed-off by concern parties once the inspection is accepted.

A Checklist shall be made for each activity on site. It is the basis of confirmation that a part of activity has been done as per method or procedure of the work.

The checklist shall be done after a construction of method statement and Inspection and Test Plan.
