New clothing policy for those travelling offshore by helicopter in the UK, from October 1st 2014

September 15, 2014

The Step Change in Safety Passenger Size workgroup has created a standardised clothing policy which sets out guidance on what should be worn under a survival suit when travelling offshore in a helicopter.   The policy will be effective from Wednesday, 1st October 2014 and should be observed by all workers travelling to installations in UK waters.  Information will be available at UK heliports that support the oil and gas sector.  Step Change in Safety has provided a poster for download and distribution here outlining the clothing allowed to be worn.
