I do not believe this is the answer to the problem, it may sound good now which shows people in the industry are thinking about a solution to the problem of tower fatalities and injuries. First; there are no training facilities in which I am aware of who can teach anyone "How to climb", this is one of the elite industries that in which it is all "hands on" training, so if there are no places in which training is available, who is going to determine an individual is licensed to climb? I understand there are training facilities such as Comtrain, Gravitec, DBI etc. who teach individuals the rules and regulations regarding industry standards and how to properly use the equipment and to prevent someone from falling, but do these places teach safe thought process in everyday actions? Second; what will a license accomplish? Most people have a drivers license? What did it teach you? The classes in which were taken taught you how to drive a vehicle safely down a road and obey the laws set forth by the government, does that keep you from breaking the law while driving a vehicle? Just because a "Tower Climber" has a license doesn't mean he will obey the law, or not have an accident, just as with driving a vehicle every day. Each day there are literally thousands of vehicle accidents, all of them have a "License"...just because someone may possess a license doesn't deem them a good driver, nor will this work in this industry. Third; who will track, enforce, mandate etc this "Licensing" process? The only entity I can see being large enough for a task such as this is the federal government, do we really want them more involved than they already are in our industry? At the end of the day, peoples actions while they are working, driving, lounging, relaxing, partying whatever all come down to a little word called "CHOICE". People know the difference between right and wrong, safe and unsafe with this knowledge, every individual chooses his/her actions throughout every day, having a license will not change a persons choice of actions. If we really want to cut down on industry fatalities, incidents, injuries etc we must change the thought process of the workers themselves. They must believe in safety, then they can act upon it. This is what the industry must focus on, getting people to believe safety is a PRIORITY not a mandate from the company they work for, OSHA, NATE or whoever, they must believe in it for themselves to make it happen. The license thing is a good idea yet all I can see is problems in the future if this proposition would go through...as I said earlier, just because you have a license doesn't mean you're going to abide by the law.
