NATE Announces STAR Initiative Participating Companies for 2022-2023 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 2022-2023 year. NATE has proudly accepted 186 participating companies in this year’s STAR Initiative program.

The STAR Initiative will be entering its thirteenth program year in 2022-2023. 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.

“NATE extends our congratulations to the distinguished and dedicated group of STAR Initiative companies who have been accepted into the program this year,” said NATE Programs Manager Sandy Jurgens, who provides administrative oversight over the program. “Over the course of the last 12 years, the STAR Initiative Program has been instrumental in driving a sea-change within the industry when it comes to proactive site-safety measures and an overall culture of safety and professionalism within the industry. The Association looks forward to collaborating with the STAR Initiative enrollees in the new program year to continue this trend of enhancing safety at communications infrastructure work sites across 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.
