HAI Safety Committee Update at HAI HELI-EXPO 2014

HAI is dedicated to improving safety in rotary-wing aviation, and HAI HELI-EXPO 2014 is the place to learn the latest practices and techniques designed to make your operations safer.

Among the many safety opportunities on offer at Expo, be sure to check out these two:

Safety Committee Town Hall
Tuesday, Feb. 25: 9:30 am - 11:30 am • Anaheim Convention Center, Room 204-B
Led by HAI's Safety Committee, this session will cover important safety-related issues relevant to all safety managers and directors of operations. Attendees are encouraged to participate in the discussion and ask questions.

Safety Directors Forum
Tuesday, Feb. 25: 11:30 am - 12:30 pm • Anaheim Convention Center, Room 204-B
David M. Eherts, Ph.D., chief safety officer for Sikorsky, will open this year's forum by speaking on ROHSEI (return on health safety environment investment) and how effective safety habits become effective safety traits. In the second half, the HAI Safety Committee will be looking for input from you: What safety resources are you looking for? Where should the industry focus its safety efforts? The HAI Safety Committee is listening! Come join the discussion on what HAI can do to help you make your organization safer.

Please note: these two event descriptions replace those published on pages 12 and 16 in the HAI HELI-EXPO 2014 Program & Exhibit Guide.
