Our major task is to perform quality assurance and certification  inspection to ensure that  your helidecks intallation  for helicopter
operations to helidecks and shipboard heliports meet the
minimum requirement stated on the current regulations.

Routine helideck inspections are usually conducted on an annual basis (dependant on type of installation), while a major inspection of
the helideck (design and systems) is performed every 5(five) years.  Our '
acceptance' will later forward to Directorate General
Petroleum and Natural Gas (MIGAS)  for an '
approval'.
Background: Between 1976 and 2002 seven fatal accidents claimed the lives of 88 offshore workers
and flight crew whilst travelling in offshore helicopters. Catastrophic component failure was the primary
cause of 4 accidents and the other 3 were attributed to human factors. There have also been two
HLO fatalities on helidecks. Occasionally, reportable (non-fatal) accidents have also occurred, just
as they do in other aviation sectors. These have included lightning strikes, major airframe
damage, loss of engine power, tail rotor damage and loss of flight control. In most of these cases
only the helicopter has been damaged but, infrequently, these incidents have resulted in injury to
personnel.
Recent research has clearly shown the need for improvement in particular aspects of the design and operation of helidecks on
offshore installations for the safety of offshore helicopter flight operations.  New designs and existing installation of helidecks need
to take this research into account.
In December 1995 a Sikorsky S61 helicopter, on final approach to the Claymore 'A' Accommodation Platform (CAP), became engulfed
in hot plumes
from gas turbine exhausts on an adjacent production platform (CPP).  As a consequence, the pilot was unable to
sufficiently arrest the helicopter's rate of descent for a safe landing, and the aircraft heavily impacted the CAP helideck, sustaining
major damage. This offshore helideck incident exposed the 2 flight crew and 14 passengers to extreme danger.
