NATE: The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association yesterday announced the member companies who have been formally approved to participate in the STAR Initiative program for the 2020-2021 year. NATE has accepted 185 participating companies in this year’s STAR Initiative which represents a record number of companies since the inception of the program, according to the association.
The STAR Initiative will enter its eleventh program year in 2020-2021. Since its inception, the program’s site safety audits and program documentation requirements have served to allow participants to proactively identify and correct hundreds of job site hazards and deficiencies. These results have allowed NATE to extrapolate valuable benchmarks and tangible data from the program, while demonstrating compelling evidence that STAR Initiative member companies are leading the charge in terms of making the industry safer.
The STAR Initiative program represents what the association calls “the gold standard” in the industry and has achieved an elevated level of distinction in the marketplace.
“STAR Initiative companies are known nationally by government agencies, standards bodies, wireless carriers and vertical realtor customers due to their proactive and aggressive commitment to safety and quality while deploying and maintaining infrastructure and networks at sites throughout the country,” said NATE Project Assistant Sandy Jurgens.
