International Towers Safety

 

 

International Towers, Inc (ITI) is a member of the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE), with the ITI corporation principles being founding members (1995).  The association was originally formed to, in part, codify tower construction standards and set minimum requirements for worker safety in order to reduce the frequency and severity of work related injuries and deaths in the tower industry.  As a direct result of activities and policies originally proposed by NATE certification companies such as ComTrain are able to train and certify both workers and trainers to a nationally recognized standard.

 

 

International Towers incorporates safety training for all employees. This training includes but is not limited to:

 

1. ComTrain Climbing and Rescue

2. RSI RF safety awareness

3. OSHA 10 and OSHA 30

4. First Aid and CPR

5. Blood borne Pathogens

6. Rigging

7. Gin Pole Training

8. Heavy Equipment Training

 

Our in house ComTrain trainer attends annual refresher courses and constant trainer class updates. In 2006 TIA/ANSI released the new tower standards, including classification of climbers.  NATE published their new “Tower Safety Training Standards” in 2006 and in 2005 North Carolina OSH published their new regulations for wireless communication including training standards.  In 2007 several General Contractors and owners increased their subcontractor and climber requirements to meet all these new and untried standards.  The basic two-day ComTrain in house training program has been the national standard since 1996 and continues to be recognized as the basic credentials required of a tower climber.  The Advanced class will meet all published standards, following such rules as, 100% fall protection utilizing either fall restraint or fall arrest. The maintenance, inspection, and function of the equipment is also provided in this training.

 

ITI’s Safety Program is compliant with the requirements current in the PICS system, as well the requirements of large general contractors such as Motorola, Crown Castle, ATT, Black and Veatch, General Dynamics, American Towers and Mastec to name a few.
