As in previous years, the winner(s) of the Innovation in Safety Award will be selected by a committee of industry professionals. The award ceremony will take place during the Helicopter Association of Canada’s annual conference, November 9th – 11th in Ottawa, ON. The award recipient(s) will receive a cash prize of $10,000 CAD in addition to recognition from the industry.
“Airbus Helicopters is proud to demonstrate our commitment to supporting and fostering a culture of aviation safety,” said Romain Trapp, President, Airbus Helicopters Canada. “With this award, Airbus Helicopters honours individuals and/or organizations across Canada who are carrying out their commitment to safety, with the introduction of processes and procedures that are both proactive and preventative.”
The Innovation in Safety Award was established as a point of reference to measure the advancements and accomplishments of organizations and individuals working to uphold Canadian helicopter safe flying practices, while employing an exceptional or ground-breaking approach. This award is a testimony to the high degree of professionalism and innovation found in today’s Canadian rotor wing operations.
The ‘Innovation in Safety Award’ will be presented to the nominee whose exceptional or ground breaking approach has demonstrated an impact on the overall goal of safe flying procedures, as recognized through the analysis of skill development, training and any additional resources, while sustaining helicopter safe flying practices.
