Much has changed in the past five years. Energy prices have collapsed, then spiked; customers have deferred, then ramped, production. We have grappled with global pandemic and now war in Ukraine. We have welcomed new market entrants in response to a changing environment and changing importance of sustainability. The offshore helicopter industry has had to adapt – quickly – to meet changing demands.
As the pace of change has accelerated, it has sparked a state of permacrisis with little time to regroup. Simultaneously, the accident rate has accelerated, from an all-time low in 2019/20, to 12 fatal accidents and 18 lives lost in 2022. Were we distracted, complacent, without the focus and resources? How do we enhance safety, succession and sustainability in a dynamic industry?
Our theme this year is ‘Reset 2024: Developing New Safety Mindsets’
We are introducing a new structure to CHC Safety & Quality Summit 2023. On Monday, we will be running a full day of ‘next generation’ training for high potential candidates who we hope will lead our industry in the years to come. These next gen delegates will join us at the conference from Tuesday onwards as we explore and develop new safety mindsets. Together, we will develop a succession plan to ensure the safety and quality of our industry in 2024 and beyond. There will be new morning sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to inform and inspire. There will also be a specific allocation of rooms ready for your company’s private meetings from mid-morning to close on Thursday. More to follow!
