Security Fencing and Safety Grating for Communication Towers

As demand for wireless and broadcast communication continues to rise, communication towers are becoming increasingly ubiquitous. Workers must climb these towers periodically throughout the year to perform maintenance and ensure optimal functionality. While crucial, these maintenance checks pose various safety hazards, including:

  • Falling objects
  • Falls from heights
  • Electrical dangers
  • Equipment failure
  • Inclement weather
  • Structural collapse of towers
  • Dangers associated with hoisting employees and equipment using base-mounted drum hoists

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) aims to reduce these risks in order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all communication tower professionals.
