Oil & Gas UK welcomes CAA’s offshore helicopter safety measures

Oil & Gas UK has welcomed yesterday’s publication of the CAA safety review of offshore public transport helicopter operations in support of the recovery of oil and gas.

 

Robert Paterson, Oil & Gas UK’s health, safety & employment issues director, said:  “This comprehensive analysis of North Sea helicopter operations and safety performance proposes a series of actions and makes a number of important recommendations for the industry, and the focus is now on managing the changes arising from the report in a considered and systematic way.

“We applaud the involvement of the Norwegian aviation authority together with an independent peer group in the review process and note the CAA review found no significant differences between UK and Norway operations.

 “We have a constructive working relationship with the CAA and we will continue to work closely with the CAA and the Helicopter Safety Steering Group (HSSG) to ensure the recommendations made in today’s report are acted on as appropriate.”
