NATE Announces Record-Setting Number of STAR Initiative Participating Companies for 2020-2021 Program Year

(Watertown, SD) – NATE: The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association today announced the member companies who have been formally approved to participate in the STAR Initiative program for the 2020-2021 year. NATE has proudly accepted 185 participating companies in this year’s STAR Initiative which represents a record number of companies since the inception of the program.

The STAR Initiative will be entering 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 our industry safer.

The STAR Initiative program represents the gold standard in the industry and has achieved an elevated level of distinction in the marketplace. Simply put, program participants are placing their respective firms in a strong business position with prominent industry customers and vendors.

“On behalf of the Association, I would like to congratulate the distinguished group of STAR Initiative companies who have been accepted to participate in this year’s program,” said NATE Project Assistant Sandy Jurgens. “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,” added Jurgens.

This year, program participants will once again have access to the innovative STAR Initiative mobile app. The STAR app significantly enhances the participant experience and provides a convenient means of submitting Site Safety Audit documentation in real-time directly from the field via smart phone, tablet or other mobile device. The official NATE STAR Initiative app is available as a free download in both iOS (Apple) and Android platforms.

As an added benefit, STAR Initiative participants also receive discounts on designated training courses offered on the NATE EXCHANGE, a dynamic website platform connecting companies to the most up-to-date training courses offered in the tower industry.
