Powerline inspection comes with challenges. Power lines are dangerous places to be because they can be damaged by lightning, wind, and other weather events. They can also be damaged by physical damage, such as tree branches falling on them or vehicles running over them.
To avoid these hazards during your power line inspection process:
- Use qualified technicians who know how to do their job properly.
- Make sure all equipment used for the project is in good condition before you start work on it.
- Wear appropriate clothing so that you don’t become injured during any part of the process.
Get the Best Possible Views
Getting the best possible view of the transmission lines and power poles is crucial when looking for damage caused by lightning, which may still be present from the storm that hit a few weeks prior or from a prior lightning strike.

Look for Weather-Related Damages
You can also look for weather-related damage, such as tree limbs that have fallen onto power lines, or physical damage, such as broken fences around the site. If there was an ice storm recently (or if it has been cold recently), this could also affect how much power has been lost from your area’s distribution system.
Collecting data before and after you inspect each power line is essential to determine how well your proposed work will withstand the yearly onslaught of weather and physical damage. Make sure to get all necessary permits, including any special permissions required by those surrounding property lines, as well as any requirements by local building codes.
Before beginning any project, make sure to get all necessary permits, including any special permissions required by those surrounding property lines and any requirements by local building codes. Even if you’re not doing work on your own property but are working for someone else who has permission to do so (such as a contractor), it’s still important to follow these same steps.
When it comes to electrical wiring inspections, many different types of permits and permissions must be obtained before starting work:
- Local building codes: These can vary depending on where in the country you live; however, they typically cover things such as minimum distances between electrical circuits or fixtures/outlets needed for safety reasons. Make sure this information is included in your contract prior to beginning any electrical work!
- Special permissions from neighboring properties: If there are other buildings nearby, then they may require special permission (e.g., “special use”) or access rights (e.g., “right-of-way”). Check with neighbors before beginning any electrical renovations so everyone knows what’s going on around them!
Having a plan for what you’re going to do at each location along the way will help keep things organized, efficient, and safe. Planning is important for efficiency because it helps you to be organized.
This can also help with safety; having a plan in place means that if there are any changes in your plans or routes, they don’t need to be made immediately. They can be put on hold until later when they’ll make more sense after completing your inspections.
A thorough powerline inspection requires that you be methodical and make sure you collect all the necessary data for successful safety planning. You must also remember to check for your own utility lines that are adjacent to these other transmission lines.
