Errors and omissions

When producers, voluntarily or not, do their job erroneously or omit to do something which they ought to have done, they commit errors or omissions. Such actions, or omission of actions, will normally lead to a defect in the building as transferred to the client at delivery, and a defect may lead to damage. For a more formal definition and a description of the chain of events leading from an error or an omission to damage, see the previous chapter.
