NATE Releases "Safe to Climb Protocol"

Flowchart helps with judgement calls May 18, 2017

WATERTOWN, S.D.—NATE has offered what it hopes will be a helpful tool determining the safety of guy anchors on towers with its “Anchor Inspection/Safe to Climb Protocol” document.

The new document is presented as a flow chart that can be used as a reference to aid owners and managers in making judgement calls on whether or not a tower is safe to climb without foreknowledge on the condition of the underground anchors.

An example of the document is given on the left, but to see the full-sized image, click here.
