Passenger Size Town Hall

The Passenger Size workgroup, which sits with the HSSG, have been progressing Action 9 from the CAA report CAP1145:

“From 1st April 2015, the CAA will prohibit helicopter operators from carrying passengers on offshore flights, except in response to an offshore emergency, whose body size, including required safety and survival equipment, is incompatible with the nearest push-out window emergency exit.”

Given the fast approaching deadline, we would like to invite Step Change members to attend a Town Hall on Thursday, 8th January 2015.  This will be an opportunity to find out more about the group's progress and ask questions you may have about passenger size and shape.  Please note, this is a closed event for Step Change in Safety members only.

The Town Hall will be run at 9am, 11am and 1pm.  We would like to encourage as many of you as possible to attend as it is essential that industry works together to meet this deadline.

Representatives from the Passenger Size workgroup will be at the Town Halls.  We will also send supplementary material to the Focal Points of each Step Change member organisation. 

If you have any questions, please contact Emily Taylor on 01224 577272 or
