As a member of the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE), we utilized NATE's well-respected safety guidelines in creating our program, which has achieved remarkable results:

* An Experience Modification Rating (EMR) of .88
* A Lost Work Day Injury Rate of 2.96.

Safety is paramount at D.W. Tower. We go the extra mile to meet, and strive to exceed, OSHA standards. A comprehensive 15-chapter Employee Safety Handbook is provided to each newly hired employee. A management level Safety Coordinator is responsible for the implementation, documentation, day-to-day oversight and ongoing evolution of the company's stringent safety program.
