This September 2016 video from the National Association of Tower Erectors is part of the association's popular Climber Connection campaign. The video highlights practical safety tips for conducting elevated work at night and includes insightful testimonial footage from a tower climber discussing the extra steps and precautionary measures that must be incorporated at the tower-site when working in the dark. "In the communications tower industry, performing work at night is often required by our customers, and the safety recommendations offered in this video can help all tower climbers perform night-time work in a safe and efficient manner," said Clayton Armstrong, a Top Hand with Tri State Tower in Marion, Iowa. "As pointed out in the video, fatigue can play a big factor and it is extremely important to have an increased level of communication between the ground and the tower. This video should be required viewing by all who work in our industry," added Armstrong.
The Climber Connection campaign was developed by the NATE Member Services Committee in conjunction with the NATE Safety & Education Committee and is designed to provide specific resources and communicate the association's message directly to the industry's elevated workforce. A central element of the campaign is the official release of twelve Climber Connection safety videos, each focused on a unique safety topic or issue involving working at heights.
