The ANSI/ASSP A10.48-2023 Standard – Criteria for Safety Practices with the Construction, Demolition, Modification and Maintenance of Communications Structures provides a comprehensive safety guidance on communication structure.
The standard includes the following sections: pre-job planning, site conditions, fall protection and rescue, radio frequency, base-mounted hoists, personnel lifting and accessories, rigging, gin poles, climbing facilities and access, structural loading considerations, training programs, capstan hoist, demolition, helicopters used for lifting external loads, and electrical safety.
Voluntary national consensus standards provide the latest expert guidance and fill gaps where federal regulations don’t exist. Companies rely on them to drive improvement, injury prevention and sustainability. With regulatory requirements being slow to change and often out of date, compliance is not sufficient to protect workers.
