Petro Guardian’s Inspection Program helps clients execute regular inspections, which help maintain the integrity of the system and help customers mitigate risk associated with lightning and static discharge. Petro Guardian leads the industry with their Omnispection inspection software, a cloud-based inspection database with built in artificial intelligence that tags non-compliance and triggers corrective action requests as soon as non-compliance is found. The inspection provides the assurance that the system has been installed and is maintained in accordance with the Petro Guardian standardized lightning and static protection plan.

“Sid’s leadership and past inspection experience will be an integral part of the Inspection Program’s growth. We’re excited and lucky to have him on our team,” said Michael Leblanc, Chief Compliance Officer.
