NATE STAR Initiative

The NATE Safety, Training, Accountability and Reliability (STAR) Initiative was developed to provide members with proven methods of improving tower site safety.

This exclusive program was designed for members to demonstrate a greater commitment to tower safety practices while recognizing industry best practices in safety and professionalism. Through the implementation of site safety audits, health & safety programs, training, best practices and the presence of competent persons, the STAR Initiative places some of the most effective safety components in the hands of NATE members.

Safety, Standards, and Education

As NATE continues to develop and promote key resources designed to improve tower climber safety, the Association is also reaching out to key stakeholders throughout the industry by providing safety resources and industry expertise to tower construction firms, general contractors, tower owners, carriers and broadcasters.
