    The majority of offshore workers travel to and from oil and gas installations by helicopter. With over 130,000 flights a year transporting over a million passengers it is vital that the industry constantly monitors and works to improve helicopter safety. A number of initiatives have been carried out over recent years and in 2014 the Civil Aviation Authority published a report on offshore helicopter safety outlining further recommendations. Work is on-going to implement the recommendations.
