Garrett Ewasiuk can spot the small stuff, which is what makes him so good at his job as a crane and rigging supervisor, says Drew Ferris, operations manager at Ewasiuk’s employer RKM Crane Services Ltd.

“Garrett’s attention to detail while ensuring the safety of crews, equipment and the public is one of the reasons that we as a company have been so successful and recognized in the industry,” says Ferris in his nomination.

At 29 years old, Ewasiuk has worked his way from apprentice to Red Seal mobile crane operator to supervisor thanks to his studious nature, which his peers see in his in-depth reading of crane manuals and his on-the-job learning from senior operators.

Now, in addition to inspecting machinery and equipment, he provides onsite logistics for rigging projects.

“Over the past four years Garrett has nearly perfected the art of assembling our cranes, dismantling and erecting various models of tower cranes, and dismantling our equipment safely and efficiently in tight quarters,” notes Ferris.
