IMPROVING SAFETY REPORTING CULTURE


Surely the safety reporting culture in the domain of helicopter operations varies significantly around the globe, but it is generally recognized as important by the industry, and more and more authorities are putting in place legal requirements in most parts of the world.


There is also significant work going on under HeliOffshore (a global safety organization for the offshore helicopter industry) to share not just reports of individual incidents, but also leading indicators of day-to-day safety performance. “We do this through our controlled-access InfoShare platform within the HeliOffshore Space portal,” says

Gretchen Haskins, chief executive officer of HeliOffshore.


According to the European Aviation


Safety Agency (EASA) there were 34,744 helicopter-related safety incidents reported at the EU level between 2007 and 2016. Offshore helicopters accounted for 6,285 of these, while the total number also includes emergency medical services, survey work, business flights and general aviation. In 2016 alone, there were 5,794 reports (of which 879 were offshore operations). In 2015 there were changes to the regulatory framework and this is a key reason for the increase. There is a general


perception that the number of reports is increasing each year and this is due to improved levels of reporting, rather than any reduction in safety. “So overall, we feel safety reporting in the helicopter sector is fairly good and improving, and there is significant commitment from the industry,” Haskins says.


Helicopter operator CHC has a safety reporting system in place and on average, it receives more than 6,000 employee reports per year. “We continue to work to


encourage additional reporting and


empower our employees to speak up when they see something across our operation.
