Two Md7 Team Members Participate in Launch of CalWA Safety Committee
Md7 Land Use Project Manager, Sean Maddox and Md7 General Counsel, Lynn Whitcher both serve on the California Wireless Association (CalWA) Board of Directors. Sean serves as Director and Lynn serves as Director and Board Secretary. Additionally, they have both have active roles in the CalWA Regulatory Committee and the Education Committee. As part of CalWA’s Education Committee efforts, Sean and Lynn have helped CalWA in the formation of a new committee focused on telecom construction and safety.
“Md7 offers Construction and Construction Management as part of our turnkey site development services. Safety is obviously an important part of that. We are excited to be part of the industry’s efforts to ensure our workers are safe,” said Lynn Whitcher.
CalWA’s new safety initiative could not come at a better time. The industry has seen a welcome focus on tower construction safety and best practices. CalWA joins other industry groups such as The Telecommunications Industry Registered Apprenticeship Program (“TIRAP”), a joint venture of telecommunications companies, industry associations and the U.S. Department of Labor, and the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) in developing helpful educational materials and safety videos.
We cannot build wireless network infrastructure at the price of worker safety. Md7 is excited to partner with the wireless industry to educate the telecom construction workforce and promote best and safe practices.
