What Our Members Are Saying

Nigel Brewis

Safety Check Engineering Ltd



We joined INITA in 2003 to work with like-minded engineering examination companies and to become involved in their technical forum in the pursuit of technical excellence and to further develop high standards of plant and machinery safety.

Being an INITA member keeps me up to date with what’s going on within the engineering industry. Many of INITA’s industrial visits have proved informative to being ‘just amazing’. Also networking with fellow engineering surveyors is an added and valued benefit.

Lee Smith

Oast Engineering

Examinations Ltd


I joined in 2002, as I left the employed world to start down the scary road of running your own company. The members of INITA gave me loads of support and practical advice along the way and proved to be an excellent forum.



Engineering specialists committed to providing focused statutory compliance examinations, testing and consulting services, designed to improve both standards of engineering plant maintenance and safety in the workplace.
