ABSTRACT
The article announces that the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) has revised its tower-climber fall-protection training standards. The move will put the association in line with the American National Standards Institute's Z359 standards that were implemented in October 2007. NATE also wanted to ensure that there will be confusion in information dissemination. The OSHA-relations committee of NATE compared the ANSI standards with the association's standards and found that ANSI better defines climber and rescuer competencies.
