AMTA continuing its global leadership in EME safety, last week at the International EME Standards Meeting in Melbourne showcased its latest worker safety innovation RadioWorkSafe.
RadioWorkSafe provides height workers, building and facility managers with essential information to help provide a safe work place and manage access around mobile and communications antennas. AMTA CEO Chris Althaus said ‘RadioWorkSafe provides the basic safety steps for working on base stations and buildings and other facilities with radio transmitting antennas.’
Ray McKenzie, AMTA's Mobile Carriers Forum program manager demonstrated the app commented that ‘A great feature of the new app is a simple checklist with the basic safety reminders’. ‘It’s easy to use and available on your mobile, tablet or laptop’.
RadioWorkSafe was developed by the Telstra EME safety team for AMTA and already has global appeal. Mike Wood, Telstra’s EME specialist spent time in Europe earlier this year with European operators and EME safety equipment manufactures where the app was put through its paces. Mike said ‘the educational resources, safety videos and easy to use checklist was a universal feature suited to a global market’.
AMTA will the app at a dedicated educational presentation for the Australian at height worker industry at the Comms Connect conference in Melbourne in November. Its available now at www.radioworksafe.com.au on your mobile, tablet or PC.
