Over 60 members of the Wireless Industry Safety Task Force participated in a meeting yesterday that was held in conjunction with the NATE UNITE 2015 Conference. The Task Force, consisting of top safety and operations executives representing wireless carriers, tower owners, OEM’s, turnkey/construction management firms and NATE, is collaborating on best practice solutions to achieve sustainable safety and quality improvements in the industry.  During the meeting, the Task Force’s Skills-Based Training Subcommittee provided a progress update on the National Wireless Skills-Based Training Standard that is under development. This premier skills-based worker standard is being developed by the industry’s leading subject matter experts and has been a by-product of industry-wide collaboration. “Black &Veatch is 100% committed to the ongoing initiatives of the Wireless Industry Safety Task Force,” stated Black & Veatch Safety Director Eric Munsell. “I am very excited about the direction of this effort and believe that the NWSA assessment/certification governance entity that is under development is a significant step forward for the industry,” added Munsell. NATE Executive Director Todd Schlekeway said, “Today’s Task Force meeting was extremely productive and demonstrates what can be accomplished when a diverse group of industry stakeholders work together with a collective focus on raising the bar on safety and quality in the industry.”
