05 Sep Tower Maintenance Importance
With the deaths of 10 tower workers so far this year, much attention is being brought to the industry in a negative light.

It seems timely to bring it to the front again and remind people of some of the most basic principals of safety, the structure itself. Read more here.
Be safe out there!
