Meet Del Schirmer! Del leads BPC’s Central Region and works with 13 national board inspectors. We recently chatted with him to learn more about who he is and what he does. Keep reading for our Q&A with Del.
BPC: What kind of objects are you typically inspecting?
Del: Our inspectors and I inspect all sizes and types of boilers and pressure vessels to ensure safety and jurisdictional code compliance. We do simple, small pressure vessels and utility-size boilers fired with various different fuels, and every size in between.
BPC: What are some interesting things you’ve seen on the job?
Del: The most interesting things I see on the job are the variety of people the inspectors work with on a daily basis.
BPC: What do you enjoy most about working here?
Del: I enjoy making our processes easier and working with the inspectors to identify ways to do high-quality inspections and then implementing those ideas into our standard work procedures. We are always looking for an easier way to do the best inspection we can do.
BPC: What do you think sets BPC apart from your competitors?
Del: We do the right thing.
BPC: What do you like to do outside of work?
Del: My wife, Susan, and I have raised four boys. We gained three amazing daughters-in-law and two of those couples are parents of our three granddaughters. My hobby is bicycle riding.
We appreciate the hard work and leadership Del provides to our team. Thank you, Del!
