"In addition to the inspector coming to the field, it is expected that the participation of all users to conduct self assessment," said Khoirul. The large number of facilities and locations that must be monitored is not proportional to the availability of the number of inspectors. Therefore, to ensure the safety of facilities requires participatory inspections.
