Why is training important in the wireless communication industry?
The wireless communication industry continues to boom and with that growth comes the demand for trained individuals in tower safety. Prior to the 1980s, communication and broadcast tower erection, servicing and maintenance was a very small and highly specialized industry, and known to few outside the industry. Over the past 30+ years, the growing demand for wireless and broadcast communications has prompted an increase in communication tower construction and maintenance, but the personnel to effectively fill these jobs sometimes lacked in training and expertise, not only in the skill to execute the climbs, but understanding and following OSHA regulations, standard safety procedures, radio frequency knowledge, and overall competent climber skills.
The importance of a tower climber’s safety can’t be overstated as it continues to be an unrelenting concern for wireless and other companies across the country. Now more than ever, companies that employ tower climbers are feeling the impact of a decrease in safety compliance on the job and a lack of trained workers to execute the job safely. To increase climber safety compliance, companies need to provide climbers with the right training and equipment and make teamwork the backbone of all safety initiatives. TelTech College can provide that training!
