November 25, 2013

Watertown, SD - Nov 25, 2013 - The National Association of Tower Erectors has posted the NATE Tower Site Hazard Recognition Guide. This online resource provides insight into the most important aspects of safety and hazard recognition on broadcast and communications tower sites. There is no charge for members or non-members to access and utilize the guide.

The guide provides safety information and requirements for a broad range of broadcast and communications tower-site hazards, from ladder positioning to the safe use of a gin pole. Provided in the Guide are sources for additional information including OSHA references and guidance to the appropriate NATE resources.

NATE says it has long believed that sharing information is key to improving safety on tower sites. In the announcement from NATE, the organization says the Tower Site Hazard Recognition Guide was developed to share knowledge between NATE members and their customers: carriers, broadcasters and tower owners. According to NATE, making the guide available to on-site personnel can empower project managers, site superintendents etc. to become part of the safety solution on their tower sites.
