1995 Canada Games, Grande Prairie, AB

On behalf of the Host Society of the 1995 Canada Games, I would like to thank Frank Murray for providing the confined space tripods and raising systems used as part of the special effects at the Opening and Closing ceremonies for the 1995 Canada Games held in Grande Prairie, Alberta on February 19 and March 4, 1995.

The two ceremonies were televised nationally on CBC. It was very important that the special effects worked perfectly.

It is our opinion that Frank Murray was the perfect choice for the job.

He is pleasant, knowledgeable, and works well with people under pressure. The performers were able to give their best because they felt completely protected as they were being raised or lowered during the performances.

This was a unique event. Frank Murray had the flexibility and desire to work with our creative team to smooth out any wrinkles that did occur in this rehearsal and performance process.

The result was spectacular.

It was a pleasure to work with your company. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to others.

Yours truly,

WAYNE C. AYLING
DIRECTOR, OPENING & CLOSING CEREMONIES,

Re: Arresting You Fall Arrest Training

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the staff at Arresting You Ltd. for conducting our fall arrest training.

The two-day course covered both theoretical and practical training. It provided the staff at the Suncor South Rosevear Gas Processing Facility with a chance to experiment with a variety of new equipment and review and discuss new regulatory issues surrounding fall arrest. The practical portion of the course allowed for staff to identify areas where fall arrest equipment needed to be employed, and were instructed in its proper use.

Instructors used innovative techniques to demonstrate the ramifications of falls and the resulting forces that can be associated with falls of even the smallest magnitude. The material presented was both informative and eye opening.

Please feel free to contact me at (780) 693-7313 if you require any further information.

Re: Loader Operator Training Course Evaluation

" A very relaxed but serious atmosphere was presented by Frank. I believe that we all had no fear of asking questions or telling the truth about a method we had been doing wrong. No low spots. Even for an experienced operator there is still thing to learn and bad habits to fix".
