Up to two (2) site managers may accompany the inspector for the inspection if desired. All individuals on site must remain a minimum of ten feet from the inspector at all times. Failure to clear the area needing inspection or maintain adequate distance from the inspector will result in a failed inspection and the inspector leaving the site immediately.
