THREE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT HOURS

Collaborative Learning and the Academy for Utility Line Design Professionals are offering this practical 1/2-day mini-course to help utility managers, engineers, designers and others improve the safety of their overhead distribution lines. The course leaders will present an overview of the conditions and defects that are typically encountered on overhead lines and will summarize the requirements of the NESC with respect to overhead line inspection, testing and correction of conditions and defects. They will also share examples of policies, procedures and best practices for ensuring that your organization and its employees are prepared to recognize, mitigate, report and correct hazards in a timely manner.

MINI-COURSE:


Introduction to the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC)

General Requirements

for Overhead Distribution Lines

The 2017 edition of the NESC is the national standard for safety in the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of overhead electric supply and communication lines. NESC rules are established on the fundamental principles used for the safety of utility facilities and the NESC is globally recognized as good engineering practice. Utilities and authorized contractors performing design, construction, operation, or maintenance tasks are responsible for meeting the applicable requirements of the NESC.  

Even if compliance with the NESC is not legally enforced, employees of utilities and their contractors have a moral responsibility to design, construct, operate and maintain electric and communication systems in a safe manner. When incidents involving utility systems cause death, injury, and property damage, litigation is often based on claims of non-compliance with the NESC. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to become more familiar with the NESC and its application to overhead distribution lines!

MINI-COURSE:


We are offering this practical 1/2-day mini-course to help utility managers, engineers, designers and others improve their pole attachment standards, processes and practices. The course leaders will present an overview of electric and telecom-munication line joint use including benefits, historical and regulatory context, and current trends. They will also describe 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. Course content will cover traditional “wireline” telecom pole attachments (fiber, coaxial cable, wire, equipment), as well as wireless antennas and equipment including 5G technology.

COURSE FEATURES:

  • Up-to-date information

  • Real-time survey questions and participant Q&A (not in recorded version)

  • Practical examples of joint-use installations 

  • Actionable recommendations to improve your joint use practices
