Occupational Customs

Customs associated with work and working practices of different crafts, trades and industries. 

Often, initiation of an individual is the first (sometimes known as Footing) and leaving or retiring is the last but between them are a wealth of customs sometimes archaic and quite individual: Topping out for Builders. Crossing the Equator for Sailors, practical jokes for the novice - striped paint and sky hooks, Banging out of Printing Apprentices, Trussing the Cooper to name but a few.
