NATE Publishes Equipment Basics Checklist
Watertown, SD - Jan 10, 2013 - The NATE Equipment Basics Checklist was developed by the NATE Safety and Education Committee as a resource for the industry. A checklist by definition is a type of informational job aid used to reduce failure by compensating for potential limits of human memory and attention. It helps to ensure consistency and completeness in carrying out a task. A basic example is the "to do list."
The NATE Equipment Basics Checklist allows tower industry personnel to document the status of their field equipment, take notes and rate them under the categories of satisfactory condition or remove from service. The checklist contains a comprehensive list of tower industry equipment governing the following areas:
■ Daily Vehicle Safety Inspection
■ Daily Basic Job Inspection Forms
■ Daily Basic Employee PPE Inspection
■ Daily Use Rigging Inspection
■ Daily Use Tools and Equipment
■ Man Baskets
■ Gin Poles
■ Other Miscellaneous Categories
NATE encourages all tower industry personnel and stakeholders to utilize the NATE Equipment Basics Checklist daily to ensure a culture of safety permeates throughout the industry. The checklist is not a legally binding document, but rather a list of recommendations based on safety principles supported by the National Association of Tower Erectors.
