NATE Unveils #ClimberConnection Video on Safety Climb Systems

Video Provides Technician Commentary on the Inspection and Use of Safety Climb Systems Installed on Communication Towers


(Watertown, South Dakota) – NATE today released a video entitled “Safety Climbs” designed to highlight the important elements of properly inspecting and utilizing safety climb systems that are installed on communication towers. The video was the latest to debut in Volume 4 of the Association’s popular #ClimberConnection campaign.

A central feature of the video includes an interview with a wireless technician who describes his personal experiences and tips when it comes to inspecting, navigating and utilizing safety climb systems in order to remain safe when working at elevation on a communication tower.

“Safety climb systems are paramount to 100% fall protection and keeping tower technicians safe while working at heights,” said James Tims, a Tower Crew Leader from CMS Wireless, LLC in North Little Rock, Arkansas. “This #ClimberConnection video provides a great overview of safety climbs and I would encourage industry technicians, contractors and tower owners to use this video as part of their respective training and education programs,” added Tims.

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.
