HeliOffshore published the inaugural Helicopter Safety Performance Report – the result of the collaborative efforts of operators, manufacturers and regulators, through HeliOffshore’s Safety Intelligence Programme.
Gretchen Haskins, CEO HeliOffshore, said: “This Helicopter Safety Performance Report reveals how far we have come as a mature, collaborative industry – but also what we need to do to close the gap with fixed-wing aircraft and eliminate fatalities in our industry.
“Over 100 HeliOffshore members are committed to work together to drive safety performance. This intelligence focuses our efforts to deliver the best safety return. We can use this global benchmark to support collaboration, inform practice and check whether our safety initiatives work.
“We will continue to improve the depth and quality of industry data so our safety strategy delivers targeted safety breakthroughs as quickly as possible.”
Work will begin on the second Helicopter Safety Performance Report in the New Year for publication in June 2020.
