Provincial Electricity Authority workers on Sunday got down to repairing 10 high-voltage power poles that had been toppled by tropical storm Pabuk on Friday (January 4) to restore power connection in three districts of Nakhon Si Thammarat province.
 

Once the broken power poles located along the Nakhon Si Thammarat-Pak Phanang Road are re-erected, electricity supply will be restored in the districts of Pak Phanang, Hua Sai and Muang, officials said.

I still doubt about the damages report as I was in the middle of the storm and it was not that bad at all...

There seems to be a distinct lack of safety harnesses and 'fall arrest' equipment. 

I think, government dont care, there are lots of people to replace the fallen ones.

My gf, labour inspector, tells me it is in Thai law to use.

Only when accident happens, they ll inspect and take actions, weird hey?!

Well im amazed sometimes more about her stories about labor conditions, im flabbergasted.

Try placing the poles in deeper holes with a concrete footing, then they may stay up for a few days
