Inspecting utility poles is an important part of ensuring the safety of challenge course participants. By inspecting utility poles below grade, you can identify potential hazards and take steps to mitigate them.
What to Look For
When inspecting a utility pole below grade, you should look for the following:
- Settlement: Utility poles can settle over time, which can cause them to lean or tilt. If a utility pole is leaning or tilting, it is important to have it repaired or replaced.
- Corrosion: Utility poles are made of wood or concrete, and both materials can corrode over time. If you see any signs of corrosion on a utility pole, it is important to have it repaired or replaced.
- Damage: Utility poles can be damaged by a variety of things, including weather, pests, and accidents. If you see any damage to a utility pole, it is important to have it repaired or replaced.
