Wilderness Ski Guiding – Work and Fatigue Survey

June 19, 2019

Your input is important !

Please take 20 minutes to tell us about your work experience and opinions on work and fatigue with the Wilderness Ski Guiding industry.  By participating in the survey, you have the option to be entered into a draw for one of two $50 Visa gift cards.

This survey has been designed by Optimal FiT Inc. in collaboration with Ian Tomm, sector consultant, and the support of HeliCat Canada and numerous other sector trade associations.  It considers recognized best practices for managing workplace fatigue and is open to all workers in the sector. Completed surveys will be stored and analyzed by Optimal FiT Inc. and discrete data destroyed after the project is completed.

This survey is a first step in understanding fatigue in this unique and internationally recognized sector.  By taking this survey, you will help this project identify the extent that fatigue may impact performance and safety.  Results will be used to focus further discussions and identify actions and next steps to improve.  

This project is funded in part by WorkSafeBC’s Small Initiative Funding and is supported by:

  • Association of Canadian Mountain Guides 
  • Backcountry Lodges of BC Association 
  • Canadian Avalanche Association 
  • Canadian Ski Guide Association 
  • HeliCat Canada Association
