Mechanical inspectors assess the installation of ventilation, refrigeration, air conditioning and heating systems and equipment, including commercial boilers, gas-fired equipment and kitchen appliances.

Plumbing inspectors check the installation of pipes to ensure the health and safety of drinking water, chemical processes for industrial use and waste disposal. They make sure that the piping layout, setting of fixtures, back flow protection and venting comply with standards and codes. Elevators are assessed by elevator inspectors in buildings that have them.

Building standards and codes are the main methods by which the United States regulates structures to ensure that the general public remains healthy and safe. Building inspectors monitor the compliance of these regulations according to the conditions of certain areas. For example, additional safety regulations are in place in areas where natural disasters and other severe weather are more common to ensure that buildings can stand up to those conditions.
