Recent UK helicopter accident and incident investigations indicate that non technical issues, like planning and risk assessment, continue to play a significant part in these events. However, evidence indicates that a strong and open operator safety culture can be a significant defence in addressing such issues.
Therefore we propose holding a Safety Culture Seminar at Aviation House, Gatwick on 8 December 2016 to promote dialogue and debate amongst the helicopter community, with the aim of raising awareness and reducing occurrences.
To register attendance, please email FOI.Helicopters@caa.co.uk. Further information will be released once confirmation of full agenda and guest speakers have been finalised.
