Who Dictates Safety Standards for Tower Rescue
Tower rescue is a complex and evolving topic. Many ways to conduct tower rescues are about as plentiful as the many different towers themselves. I have taken numerous tower rescue courses, and have learned a tremendous amount on the subject (though truly only scratching the surface of a complex world). One area that is still gray to me is who governs or dictates any standards on tower climbing / access for rescue? Would it be OSHA, NATE, ANSI, or others? Any clarification on this would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to be thorough, and I am going to be using this information gained to present an awareness level training to my department. Thanks in advance.
