Did you know that unsafe power poles can lead to fires or electric shock? Keeping private power poles safe is your responsibility.
A safety inspection is recommended every five years by a qualified electrical contractor, who can advise if repairs or replacement are required. Be on the look out for:
- Poles leaning excessively;
- Evidence of rotting or corrosion at ground level or just below;
- Electrical fittings or wires, broken or pulling away from the pole;
- Cross arms that are splitting, loose or sagging.
