OSHA cites Pinpoint Towers LLC and some other news.


OSHA cites Optica Network Technologies, which was operating as Pinpoint Towers LLC,  over a fallen worker. He was a young man, 25, who fell 50′ while doing maintenance. 

Article says that they failed to insure fall protection was maintained at all times. 

Fine is $21,000, first time citation to this company.

To all my friends from Australia, England, Germany, Mexico, Canada, and outside of the USA please send me your links to your equivalent to the OSHA in the USA so I can understand what your countries are doing better than the US in tower climbing process and safety regulations. I need it for an upcoming blog. Thank you in advance! If it’s easier, email me at Wade4wireless@gmail.com.

Also, tell me what you need in the way of hardware on a regular job!
