NATE yesterday released a video entitled “Rooftop Safety: Don’t be Complacent” in order to shine a spotlight on the specific hazards, guidelines and best practices associated with wireless rooftop deployment activities. Click here to watch the Wireless Rooftop Deployment video.
The video provides valuable rooftop deployment safety information such as the hierarchy of fall prevention controls, RF hazard identification, ladder utilization and edge negotiation.
The video also includes an interview with an experienced wireless technician who provides his perspective and tips for conducting rooftop work in a safe and efficient manner.
NATE Wireless Industry Network California State Liaison Corey Messer from Pacific Safety Solutions said, “As an industry trainer based out of heavily populated Southern California, I know first-hand both the prominent role rooftop sites are playing to densify networks and the unique hazards associated with these type of sites,” added Messer.
NATE encourages tower technicians and industry stakeholders to actively participate in this campaign by posting the video on their respective social networking platforms using the hashtag #ClimberConnection. NATE also encourages industry workers to share their comments on the video through social interaction on the association’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
The Climber Connection Volume 4 campaign was developed by the NATE Member Services Committee in conjunction with the NATE Safety & Education Committee and is designed to provide specific resources and communicate the association’s message directly to the industry’s workforce.
