c. Installing wooden steps.
(1) Position the step flush against the pole (Figure 1-25) and drive a 60 penny galvanized
wire nail through the upper hole in the step and into the pole.
(2) Drive a 30D galvanized wire nail through the lower hole in the step and into the pole.
Remove bent nails and replace with straight nails.
d. Driving steel steps into small poles. When double steel steps must be driven into poles that
are less than 9 inches in diameter at the point where the steps are to be placed, allow vertical separation
between the lead holes as shown in Figure 1-28. The separation between steps will prevent the second
step from driving out the first, or from splitting the pole.
Wooden approach steps will not be installed
on poles located in unsecure areas or where
access to unauthorized persons may
constitute a safety hazard.
