This standard for installation, alteration and maintenance of antenna supporting structures and antennas will be the basis to allow construction workers and engineers to provide safe construction procedures without being overly conservative due to the lack of readily available, or properly understood guidelines. You'll find excellent information in this forum to help guide you in using it to prevent construction accidents and structure collapses. It should lessen the liabilities of all parties participating in its proper use. The new TIA-1019 standard is over 100 pages of information and documentation you'll need to know to be compliant, but as seen when the new Revision G standard was introduced, there will be many questions regarding the standard's sweeping changes. It's been a work in progress for many years and is a major revision of the 2004 standard which primarily focused upon greater awareness of safety during gin pole use. TIA-1019 is authored by the nation’s leading engineers and tower erection professionals. Although those members can discuss the standard, they are not permitted to speak for the ANSI TR-14.7 sub-committee. The 2004 standard, spearheaded by the National Association of Tower Erectors, was developed over a five year period with research of clinical and theoretical models of gin pole type structures, along with small scale and large scale gin pole load testing.
