WASHINGTON — The National Association of Tower Erectors is now offering one of its primary resources in a Spanish language edition.
“Norma de Capacitación de Protección contra Caidas para Trepadores de Torres de la NATE” is the translated version of the fourth edition of the “NATE Tower Climber Fall Protection Training Standard.” The standard establishes the minimum requirements to which all tower climbers should be trained, and the NATE CTS outlines the individual standards for varying levels of tower climber expertise, as well as contains a Course Training Plan to demonstrate how to implement and utilize the NATE CTS and a Definitions section.
The Spanish edition is available online as a free resource for member companies, and the print format is available for both members and non-members to purchase.
“A Spanish language edition of the NATE CTS is crucial for the industry's growing multicultural workforce. Making it accessible to a larger audience will help ensure all employees are adequately trained and maintain the highest level of safety standards,” Sindy Benavides, chief operating officer and acting CEO of the League of United Latin American Citizens said in a press release.
The association also said it plans to translate other resources to Spanish in the future.
