Utility poles provide support for electrical systems via wiring and power lines, whether they are for telephones, cable, street or traffic lights, cellular networks, or other electrical mediums. There is a set of codes and regulations that must be followed when installing utility poles, the violation of which could lead to safety or power issues and potential lawsuits.
Each utility pole is part of a larger power system; the failure of one utility pole can cause major damages as well as electrical accidents. There are numerous elements in utility poles, such as the structure, material, and construction. A utility poles expert witness may specialize in wood, while another may specialize fire safety from fire caused by power lines.
As with any item based in electrical engineering, utility poles may be the source of an electrical accident. High voltage wiring is often used and must therefore be installed under certain codes and compliance to prevent the occurrence of an electrical shock, electrical fire, electrocution, or other types of accident. Inspections, safety warnings, and national electric codes are implemented as additional precautions in accident prevention.
