All of these companies who remain NATE members in good standing will be recognized as participants in the NATE STAR Initiative through September 30, 2013. The NATE STAR Initiative was designed to help companies operate safely while recognizing tower erectors who voluntarily adhere to higher standards. The NATE STAR Initiative emphasizes Safety, Training, Accountability and Reliability by asking participants to commit to requisite levels of training, site safety audits and the implementation of safety programs while adhering to industry best practices.


“NATE is excited to see the continued growth of the STAR Initiative program”, said NATE Executive Director Todd Schlekeway. “ I would like to congratulate the NATE member companies who have elected to participate in the program in 2013. With as busy as the tower construction and maintenance industry is going to be over the next several years, the STAR Initiative program participants will be industry leaders in ensuring that a culture of safety permeates industry wide.”


Again, congratulations to the 2013 STAR members. Your participation in this program demonstrates your willingness to continue to drive industry safety to new heights.
