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 and the NATE-OSHA-FCC Partnership program for the 2023-2024 year. NATE has proudly accepted 192 participating companies in this year’s STAR Initiative program and 157 participating companies in this year’s NATE-OSHA-FCC Partnership.

The STAR Initiative will be entering its fourteenth program year in 2023-2024. 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.This year’s program will have new, expanded site safety audit documentation categories and questions to reflect the diversity of work that is currently taking place in the industry and capture more job-specific and relevant data.

Additionally, program participants can once again submit audits from the field utilizing the new NATE Mobile App. This new, all-inclusive NATE Mobile App allows our members to access safety materials, member benefits, event information, and submit STAR Audits, just to name a few. The new NATE Mobile App significantly enhances 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 another mobile device. The NATE Mobile 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.

The NATE-OSHA-FCC National Strategic Partnership program is entering its 3rd year of site safety data collection and analysis. The NATE-OSHA-FCC Partnership provides participants the opportunity to work cooperatively with OSHA, FCC, and other contractors, to identify the most serious workplace hazards, to develop workplace-appropriate safety and health management systems, to share resources, and to find effective ways to reduce work injuries, illness, and deaths.

The goals for this partnership are to eliminate fatalities and reduce serious injuries and illnesses; establish root causes of fatalities, injuries, and illness; develop and implement best practices to eliminate the number of fatalities, injuries, and illness; develop and deliver training; communicate safety and health best practices within the industry; and establish an effective evaluation strategy to ensure the goals of the Partnership are met.

As a participant in the NATE-OSHA-FCC Strategic Partnership, as well as participating in the STAR Initiative program, participants are engaging in building the cooperative relationship with groups that have a vision of providing a safe and healthful work environment for our men and women.
