  • Installation of the anchor element in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions
  • Knowledge of proper measures for protection of anchor element threads from adhesive
  • Knowledge of measures to secure and protect the anchor element from load/movement during adhesive cure
  • Understanding Special Inspector’s role on the jobsite
  • Knowledge of the difference between periodic and continuous inspection and under what conditions each is required
