Marker Post: Hindsight and Historical Errors

Hindsight is always 20/20. Even the most accomplished surveyors are not immune to making mistakes; however, having a written policy in place to address unknown errors from previous surveys or projects can turn a potential disaster into a valuable learning opportunity.

By collaborating with your insurance provider to establish a written policy, you can safeguard not only yourself and your company but also the public at large. A written policy also enhances transparency and guarantees that a uniform and suitable approach is implemented whenever errors are uncovered.
