COMPETENT CLIMBER & TOWER RESCUE

Meridian Blue Construction has an in-house Comtrain instructor.  Our trainer is a member of the International Technical Rescue Association (ITRA), the American Alpine Club (AAC), Alpine Club of Canada (ACC), and a certified climbing wall instructor (CWI).  Using Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) standards in combination with the ANSI standards we offer the latest training both initially upon hire and periodically as required by our safety program.

ADVANCED RED CROSS FIRST AID

Though OSHA requires standard First Aid across all industries, Meridian Blue Construction offers Red Cross Remote Area and Wilderness First Aid as a benefit to its technicians.  Since most tower locations are out of range of prompt professional medical attention, Meridian Blue Construction strives to give its technicians the resources to provide prompt care in the unfortunate event of an accident or injury. Meridian Blue Construction is an affiliate provider of the American Red Cross.
