Are there any inspection intervals required for hot sticks? If so, is it in a ASTM document?
Thanks

They should be tested every 2 years if they are used as your primary means of shock protection. ASTM F711

OK!,
Welcome along mate,
What type of hot-sticks are you using?.
The shot-gun or the telescopic type?.
