Comments Off on Deadline For NATE STAR Initiative Is August 31st
With 10 tower technician accidents in 2013 alone, safety has become a big topic among the wireless tower industry and the National Association of TowerErectors is working hard to encourage members of the tower industry to take safety seriously.
The NATE STAR Initiative was designed to help companies operate safely while recognizing tower erectors who voluntarily adhere to higher standards. The NATE STAR Initiative emphasizes Safety, Training, Accountability and Reliability by asking participants to commit to requisite levels of training, site safety audits and the implementation of safety programs while adhering to industry best practices.

This initiative is open to all NATE members who employ tower climbers and NATE encourages all eligible members to take part in this program to show their dedication to tower climber safety. NATE lists a few of the benefits of this program:
  •     The NATE STAR Initiative provides a tested and proven method for NATE members to have a direct impact on the safety of tower technicians.
  •     On a larger scale, the STAR Initiative is NATE’s next step toward establishing an industry wide culture of safety. The results of this program will help further define what should be expected of qualified tower erectors.

After completing this program you will receive a certificate signed by the NATE Chairman and Executive Director. Enrollment is open from July 1st to August 31st each year and this is the only time of the year when new participants are accepted.
