(Watertown, SD) – The National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) today released a 100% Tie-Off Safety Video as part of the Association’s 2016 Climber Connection campaign. The video was released by the Association in advance of next week’s NATE UNITE 2016 Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The video highlights practical 100% Tie-Off safety tips for industry workers to follow to ensure that they are adhering to the standards and compliance directives that govern fall protection. The video includes aerial views of tower climbers working on a communications tower and a testimonial of a tower climber discussing safe 100% Tie-Off practices and promoting a zero tolerance policy in regards to the 100% Tie-Off law.
“Not only is 100% Tie-Off the law, but we all have families to go home to at the end of the day,” stated Nick Spiker from Peak Communications. “Thankfully, I’ve never fallen into my gear, but I always, always clip off. 100% Tie-Off is worth every second. It only takes once,” added Spiker, who has been an active tower climber for 14 years.
