Course Overview

United States employers have a legal responsibility to educate employees on all workplace safety standards and the hazards their employees may face while on the job. When it comes to the wireless industry, site safety training is essential for all personnel who enter cell sites. Wireless Site Safety is the first combined training program in the Wireless Industry that provides an industry overview, antenna and site-specific training, driver safety, and complete training that includes an OSHA 10-hour construction card. Delivered by an experienced wireless industry expert, this course addresses the basic practices of identifying, eliminating, and reporting hazards associated with working on a wireless site.

*Training contact hours can be applied against TIRAP related instruction outlines for TTT-1 and TTT-2 (Telecommunication Tower Technician) and Wireless Technician.

Establishing good safety practices helps establish an effective safety culture, increase worker productivity, improve quality of service, and reduce the number of injuries and deaths, property damage, legal liability, illnesses, workers’ compensation claims, and missed time from work. Whether you are an individual looking to learn new skills and receive certification, or an employer looking to gain a competitive advantage by upskilling your workforce, successful completion of these courses ensure core competencies.
