Harmonization of regulations that apply to cranes, hoisting and rigging across Canada would be highly beneficial to industry, operators, and the public in terms of increased safety, reduced costs, and greater employer and worker mobility. Harmonization will benefit Canada on the international scale by making possible the development of agreements that support international labour mobility. 

The Canadian Hoisting and Rigging Safety Council provides an inclusive forum for national dialogue on harmonization. Its key mandate is to act impartially on industry’s behalf with the goal of establishing common crane industry regulations and credentialing across Canada.
