In Featured News by Wireless Estimator

NATE: The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association today announced the member companies who have been formally approved to participate in the STAR Initiative program for the 2021-2022 year. NATE has proudly accepted 176 participating companies in this year’s STAR Initiative program.The STAR Initiative will be entering its twelfth program year in 2021-2022. Since its inception, the program’s site safety audits and program documentation requirements have served to allow participants to proactively identify and correct hundreds of job site hazards and deficiencies.

These results have allowed NATE to extrapolate valuable benchmarks and tangible data from the program, while demonstrating compelling evidence that STAR Initiative member companies are leading the charge in terms of making our industry safer.

The STAR Initiative program represents the gold standard in the industry and has achieved an elevated level of distinction in the marketplace. Simply put, program participants are placing their respective firms in a strong business position with prominent industry customers and vendors.

On behalf of the Association, “I would like to take this opportunity to extend my warm congratulations to this distinguished group of STAR Initiative companies who have been accepted to participate in this year’s program,” said NATE Director of Safety, Health, & Compliance Kathy Stieler.

“These companies’ efforts with regards to safety, have not just reached the eyes of their fellow NATE members and the men and women in the industry, but are recognized nationally by government agencies, standards bodies, wireless carriers, and vertical realtor customers. These STAR Participants have committed to something truly special, and it is a testament to the safety cultures of their respective teams. Thank you STAR Initiative companies for your continued focus on job site safety and quality, and your dedication to the protection of your employees while deploying and maintaining infrastructure and networks at sites throughout the country,” added Stieler.

This year, program participants will once again have access to the innovative STAR Initiative mobile app. The STAR app significantly enhances the participant experience and provides a convenient means of submitting Site Safety Audit documentation in real-time directly from the field via smart phone, tablet or other mobile device. The official NATE STAR Initiative app is available as a free download in both iOS (Apple) and Android platforms.

As an added benefit, STAR Initiative participants also receive discounts on designated training courses offered on the NATE EXCHANGE, a dynamic website platform connecting companies to the most up-to-date training courses offered in the tower industry.
