The overall objective of the Helicopter Safety Study 3 (HSS-3) is to contribute to improved safety in helicopter transport of personnel to, and from, fixed and floating oil- and gas installations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). The project is named Helicopter Safety Study 3 (HSS-3) and is a follow-up of the previous HSS-1 and HSS-2 studies. HSS-1 and HSS-2 cover the periods 1966–1990 and 1990–1998 respectively and are available in English. HSS-3 covers the period 1999–2019. The HSS-3 report is so far only in Norwegian language with an English executive summary. The main report describes a method for risk quantification, development for the periods 1999–2009 and trends 2010–2019, plus statistical/historical data and the estimation of risk levels. In addition, the study includes an analysis of passengers' risk perception regarding offshore helicopter transport, and a proposalon how the safety can be followed by a set of lagging and leading indicators to monitor safety.
Finally, recommendations are given for a number of measures about how safety can be improved or, as minimum, be maintained at the present level.
