NWSA-LogoThe National Wireless Safety Alliance (NWSA) unveiled the organization’s official logo during a presentation last week at the 2015 International Wireless Communications Expo in Las Vegas, Nev. The NWSA is a non-profit assessment and certification organization that is being created to serve as the governance entity of the Wireless Industry Safety Task Force’s National Wireless Skills-Based Training Standard.

The mission statement of the NWSA is to provide thorough, independent assessments of knowledge and skills and provide verifiable worker certification in order to enhance safety, reduce workplace risk, improve quality, encourage training, and recognize the skilled professionals who work on towers and other non-standard structures.

The NWSA official logo consists of a green, white and gold color theme and depicts a silhouette image of a tower technician climbing safely on a communications tower. The NWSA logo will be branded and featured prominently on all NWSA certification cards, website applications and other resources the organization produces.

“I believe the logo is bold and I like the fact that it projects a tower climber working on a tower,” stated Corie Fontenot, Safety Manager and Trainer at TowerMRL, Inc. in Sun Prairie, Wis. “A national assessment and certification entity has been needed in this industry for a long, long time and I believe that the NWSA brand will ultimately represent a badge of honor for the industry workforce who achieves the various NWSA certification offerings,” added Fontenot.
