14 Feb OSHA: Communication Towers
OSHA recently released a specific website page for Communications Towers and the related risks and dangers associated with them. If you have not see it or taken the time to browse it yet, you should. Take a look here.
“In 2013, OSHA recorded a total number of 13 communication tower-related fatalities. In the beginning weeks of 2014, there have already been four fatalities at communication tower worksites. This represents a significant increase in fatalities and injuries from previous years, and OSHA is concerned at this trend. OSHA is working with industry stakeholders to identify the causes of these injuries and fatalities, and to reduce the risks faced by employees in the communication tower industry.”
This is a team effort folks, and everyone needs to start taking inventory of their situation.
