The Wireless Industry Safety Task Force released the third in a series of public service announcements (PSA) as part of the 100% Tie-Off 24/7 Awareness Campaign. This PSA entitled “Working Together” was unveiled before the task force met in Dallas on Nov. 13, 2014.
"This PSA highlights the unprecedented collaboration that has occurred over the course of the last year between the carriers, tower owners, turnkey/construction management firms, OEMs, and the National Association of Tower Erectors in order to achieve sustainable safety solutions in the industry," said Task Force member Don Doty from Velocitel. "Every entity in the wireless industry chain has a role to play when it comes to safety, and the efforts and initiatives of the Wireless Industry Safety Task Force have reinforced that reality."
The Task Force’s 100% Tie-Off 24/7 Awareness Campaign was launched in February 2014 and continues to utilize a comprehensive grassroots approach that includes public service announcement videos, paid advertising, earned media efforts, a social media component and collaborating with State Wireless Associations in order to expand the campaign's reach.
