1. First, a little about you... Please select the options that apply.  Are you an:
2. What organization are you with (Optional)?
3. What industry sector(s) does your company serve?
4. Do you work in more than one province/territory?
4 a) If applicable, what inter-provincial and territorial challenges are most adversely impacting your business and how would you like to see them resolved? 

5. Some questions about rigging...

In jurisdictions with a shared rigging standard the rigging occupation and crane occupations are separate. Operators have responsibility for everything above the hook and riggers everything below. In Canada, rigging is not recognized as a separate occupation and there is no national standard for rigging. Canadian crane operators therefore have responsibility for all aspects of a lift, both above and below the hook. 

We would like to hear your perspective on this...

5 a) Would a national rigging standard be of value?
5 b) What advantages or disadvantages if any are there to the existing Canadian model? 
5 c) In your view, should the person working below the hook be responsible for that work?
6. A few final questions...
6 a) In what specific areas does crane safety need to be improved in your region?
6 b) What if anything about the industry keeps you up at night?
6 c) Please share any other comments, questions or suggestions for us to consider
Thank you!
