NATE Webinar Looks at Safety

Tower accidents, whether fatal or not, can provide a multitude of headaches for a tower company. In the webinar “Stairway to Heaven: Preventing Fatalities and Catastrophic Accidents,” the National Association of Tower Erectors will try to bring the scope of tower safety and responsibility into focus.

NATE notes that tower builders and maintenance companies can find themselves examined by OSHA, EPA, Dept. of Justice and that doesn’t include a swarm of attorneys along with local and state officials.

A release explains, “This session will discuss how to improve the effectiveness of your company safety program, including identifying and abating serious and potentially fatal workplace hazards, while providing you the tools to handle a workplace fatality or catastrophic accident.”

And it sets out some issues to be discussed: “How to understand the scope of criminal and civil liability for safety and health violations; How to secure legal privilege to accident investigations; How to ensure the company’s safety policies are in place to protect against potential liability; and How to understand your legal rights during OSHA inspections.”

The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, 11 a.m.–noon.
