Many cities/counties have their own structural observation forms and some you can download from their web sites.  For example, try the following:

click on Los Angeles Regional Uniform Code Program (on far left of screen)

click on Phase II (down a ways and center of screen)

download pdf Structural Observation Form (about half way down on this screen)

Please respond to

Structural observation

Does anyone have a sample contract for structural observation,
specifically the indemnifications, etc.,.  We usually work on
residential projects, so have not performed much structural observation
unless there was a problem in the field.  I just want to protect myself
from the more obvious pitfalls of providing complete structural
observation on our projects. (Mostly residential)  

I have heard never to call it "inspection", I assume that the language
has been defined by a court of law..
