Applying Industry Code to Your Pole Loading Analysis

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST

As the number of requests for both wire and wireless communication attachments continue to accelerate, more and more jurisdictions and pole owners are requiring and apply greater scrutiny on the submitted Pole Loading Analysis (PLA) and Make Ready Engineering (MRE). 

Topics covered in this webinar include:

  • Learning how to apply the application codes (NESC, GO95, or CSA) correctly
  • Understanding when and where to apply the code rules, districts, and proper safety factors is critical for generating a proper PLA.  While understanding the multitude of clearance analysis rules is also necessary in delivering your MRE reports
  • The webinar will demonstrate the various code requirements and how to apply them correctly using the O-Calc Pro application

This webinar is eligible for IEEE PDH credit. To earn credit, you must attend the live webinar and complete the IEEE evaluation we’ll provide to you after the webinar.
