Electric and Communication Line Joint-Use...
Getting it Right!

The Association for Utility Line Design Professionals (UtilityLDPros) is offering this in-depth webinar series to help utility line design professionals recognize the need for improvement in the processes and practices used for joint-use overhead and underground electric and communication line design. The webinar leaders will describe proven management and engineering “best practices” which, with proper application, can result in line designs that are safer, more reliable, and in compliance with the requirements of the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) and professional engineering laws and regulations.

Webinar Highlights:

  • What is utility line joint-use and why is it desirable?
  • What are the significant trends in joint-use today?
  • What are the rights and obligations of pole owners?
  • What are the rights and obligations of attaching parties?
  • Who is responsible for NESC violations and other non-conforming installations?
  • What should be done to ensure NESC compliance?
  • What are some best practices for joint-use management and engineering?
