SC&RF sends out its Workforce Survey

October 4, 2023  By Don Horne

Coming on the heels of a very successful SC&RA Workshop in Oklahoma City, Okla., the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Foundation (SC&RF) is conducting its second annual Industry Workforce Survey to determine the state of the industry and is requesting all SC&RA member companies’ participation.

According to a statement from the SC&RF, “This survey will provide necessary data to compare against the 2021 data collected as a workforce development benchmark.”

The 2023 research report, State of the Workforce in the Crane, Rigging and Specialized Transport Industry, provided analysis of the data on specific occupations and their average education level, wages, and turnover. The report in 2024 “will be used to assist members and the SC&RF as they build a case to support careers in the industry for educators, schools, and parents.”

“The efforts to re-establish skilled trades as valuable, worthy career options are gaining traction – and this data supports all the claims,” states the SC&RF. “The data is collected anonymously and will be analyzed and published to benefit advocacy efforts, recruiting programs and to enhance and grow the SC&RF’s ongoing workforce development initiatives.”


Respondents will receive a thank you gift.
