Watertown, SD - Feb 17, 2010 -The National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) has launched a tower-site hazard recognition guide to continue to improve safety on broadcast and communications tower sites. This program will provide guidance to project managers, site superintendents and any other responsible personnel on a tower site, to recognize hazardous situations. NATE launched the program at NATE 2010, its annual trade show being held in Lake Buena Vista, FL.

NATE teamed with two cellular carriers, SBA Communications and Cellular South, to develop the content for the guide.

The association also leveraged its repository of tower safety standards and safety resources to ensure the Hazard Recognition Guide provides personnel with the information required to empower everyone on a broadcast or communications tower site with the knowledge of safe operating procedures. This will help them recognize hazards on broadcast and communications tower sites and take steps to alleviate those situations quickly and effectively. The guide also provides personnel with additional resources such as OSHA guidelines where further information about specific topics can be gathered.

NATE is offering the guide free to anyone, not just NATE members. Find a link to the guide at
