The aftermath of inspection
Pages 16

Never go to excess, but let moderation be your guide. Cicero

Breathing a massive sigh of relief may be the obvious reaction to the end of an inspection, and there’s a lot to be said for putting it all behind you and moving on with your work and your life. But there is merit in taking some time to ‘de-brief ’ on the inspection that has just taken place, and tie up any loose ends, whether emotional or practical, to ensure that maximum use is made of the experience. It’s also important to celebrate your successes and to mark this important feature of your working life. Letting it slide by achieves neither.
