Zero-Tolerance Policy Mandates 100% Tie-Off 24/7
FDH Velocitel and the Wireless Industry Safety Task Force are proud to launch the 100% Tie-Off 24/7 Awareness Campaign in order to raise awareness of the 100% tie-off fall protection requirement and drive home the message that there should be a zero-tolerance policy regarding this law. Many of the accidents that compromise safety in the wireless industry involve situations where the tower technician was not properly tied-off to the structure. 100% tie-off is the law and needs to be strictly adhered to at all times in order to ensure a safer work environment on a tower site.
FDH Velocitel has taken an active part in the Wireless Industry Safety Task Force, which consists of top safety and operations executives representing wireless carriers, tower owners, OEMs, turnkey/construction management firms, and the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE). The Task Force collaborates on best practice solutions to achieve sustainable safety improvements in the industry. FDH Velocitel also holds membership on the Board of Governors of the National Wireless Safety Alliance, established in 2015 as the governance arm of the Task Force’s National Wireless Skills-Based Training Standard.
