Safety is imbedded throughout all levels of helicopter operations, but, unknowingly, individuals can create an atmosphere that diminishes safety instead of fostering it. This session will discuss how we currently approach safety and what’s missing, and the importance of developing emotional intelligence on all levels of the operation to improve awareness, communication, and behavior.
