NATE to Launch '100% Tie Off' Campaign for Tower Erectors

The National Association of Tower Erectors will begin assembling tomorrow in Nashville for its annual conference, NATE 2009. This year, as part of the association's "It's Up To You" safety campaign, members at the event will be asked to individually commit to making 100 percent tie-off a reality in the industry. Each NATE member making the pledge will sign his or her name on a "100% Tie-Off"-printed lanyard and clamp it to a six-foot base of a section of tower, demonstrating in writing a dedication to the fall protection safety goal.

The conference, held every February to reiterate to members the importance of safety, will include educational sessions and exhibits focused on the latest innovations associated with the tower industry. This year, members also will be asked to sign a petition to stop further delays in the DTV transition, which NATE says is an issue affecting a large portion of the industry.

A Welcome Reception will kick off tomorrow from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Gaylord Opryland® Resort and Convention Center, Ryman Hall B1-4, in Nashville. The conference proper begins Tuesday, Feb. 24. A ribbon-cutting ceremony and the opening of the event's expo is planned for 5 p.m. The expo will continue on Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. More information is available at www.natehome.com.
