Why should Cost per Underground Powerline Inspection be measured?

Cost per Underground Powerline Inspection measures the total cost of inspecting underground powerlines in relation to the number of underground powerlines inspected over the same period of time. A relatively high value for this metric is typically related to a few common factors, including poor quality of initial powerline installment (includes the quality of the cable and structure being installed as well as the quality of the installation itself), overstaffing, general inefficiencies within inspection processes (e.g., inefficient use of proper PPE, poor precautions taken when inspecting damaged powerlines, poor documentation concerning powerline location, etc.), and sub-par powerline inspection employee training and performance. While companies typically seek to streamline operations and employee positions to reduce expenses while performing powerline inspections, great care should be taken when doing so as too many layoffs may reduce the utility company's ability to inspect and maintain the company's powerlines and transmission networks in a timely and efficient manner.
