Re: Manager Field's Inspection Checklists Form
r decisions, so you should look into the installation's performance and incident history in order to establish an overview of (possible) problems and bottle necks.
The inspection task is always embedded in a larger economical field, since the installation has to be run with some kind of profit.
For a more general look at things, try to find out more about the API RP 579 Fitness-For-Service document, a set of recommended practice rules, and look for the interference of these kind of rules with your inspection job. Then, you can make more focussed inquiries as to what applies to your environment best and we could help you with more dense info.
Finally, never forget: safety overrules money (= time, man hours, resources, ...).

Re: Manager Field's Inspection Checklists Form
Most codes, standards and recommended practices provide actual inspection checklists not a supervisory level.
Supervisors & Managers are normally monitoring 'system' implementation so checklists should be developed from the actual system manuals, codes etc. in place much as would be completed prior to a typical Quality Audit.
Concentrate on those items that ensure the system works:
Inspection Procedures - do the exist? are the encompassing the equipment covered? are they being followed?
Personnel - are they trained? are benchmarks such as certification in place to ensure correct training? is continuing skills and education in place?
Are you using correct codes & standards? - are they up to date?, is there an updating process?

Typical but many more aspects will come in depending upon each operation.

Regards
