On Thursday, December 7, Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., former Secretary of Labor for OSHA, conducted a live NATE webinar entitled Preparing Effective Job Safety Analysis (JSA’s) and Pre-Job Meetings. The program examined in detail the elements of a comprehensive Job Safety Analysis (JSA), how to develop and implement a JSA, and the importance of pre-job safety meetings as a tool in implementing your JSA on a daily basis.

As referenced in the webinar, the A10.48 Standard – Criteria for Safety Practices with the Construction, Demolition, Modification and Maintenance of Communications Structures is a game changer for the industry as it has the distinction of being the first comprehensive standard encompassing the entire tower construction, service and maintenance industry.
The A10.48 Standard establishes criteria for safe work practices and training for personnel performing work on communication structures. It is a resource that outlines many construction and maintenance practices that have never been described before. To order your copy the A10.48 Standard, click here.
