Interesting.

Well then, let's see if I can generate some steam in the old dog anyway............

If one looks on the West Yorks Police web site, it shows a vacancy @ NPAS for a safety officer. Firstly, I thought they already had a safety (and compliance) officer and secondly why is THE safety officer for one of the biggest onshore helicopter operators - earning less than the business services manager?

Is this because the boss man perceives it that way from a priority perspective?

Methinks there is trouble @ Mill.

I recently overheard a rumour that NPAS is being run from France!

Surely not....

But TC, you should know that if you haven't had a crash for a bit, it means you are safe. If you are safe already, any further investment in safety is a waste.

Whereas, any investment in business services can be measured immediately in terms of shiny new paperclips on the desk.

Who in their right mind would forfeit shiny paperclips today for the indefinite promise of no crashes tomorrow?

Someones career was maybe being jeopardised by the threads content, last time I browsed the 489 pages of it, was all mostly topical chat about the positives of base closures and service delivery improvements made year on year in real terms.

Pass me coat

GACH

I understand that some people are very proud of their shiny new NPAS/GACH badges and insignia. Maybe the organisation is quite flush and can afford to invest in lots of new badges

Oh dear,
word on the street is that no-one applied for the mickey mouse salary that was afforded the Head of Safety role?
What now?
In fact the wheel has just come off this particular management vehicle it seems......
Another own goal methinks........tut tut.
When will senior management at NPAS understand the level of importance aviation has in police work? It's not meant to be an us and them arrangement, never was, never will be. It is a team effort not a police effort.

NPAS 'planks'

I am reliably informed that the first one 'might' be delivered by April next year, no one knows when it or the other 3 will be operational. Does that mean it will be after the next batch of rotary bases close

Head of Safety

Not sure exactly, something to do with changing the role from Safety and compliance to just safety. Less responsibility, lower salary and having to live in West Yorkshire may have something to do with it.
