Getting it Right!  (Part II)

October 18, 2018       8:00 A.M. PDT      9:00 A.M. MDT      10:00 A.M. CDT      11:00 A.M. EDT

Association for Utility Line Design Professionals (UtilityLDPros) has offered 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 described 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?

Webinar Features:

  • Up-to-date information
  • Real-time survey questions and participant Q&A
  • Practical examples of joint-use installations
  • Actionable recommendations to improve your joint-use practices

Webinar Leaders: 
Ted Dimberio and John Miner
