Dear BARS Member Organizations and TAC representatives,
While we are not a safety regulator, we encourage our members to ensure your Aircraft Operator service providers report any accidents and incidents to us as quickly as possible. The data we get from these reports helps us improve the BAR Standard's risk and safety factors, which in turn will give you, our BMO's, greater confidence that your people can come home safely.
I am sharing with you the 1Q2021 World Wide Onshore Resource Sector Accident Summary report.
The 1Q2021 Accident Report highlights a continuing positive trend in recorded aviation events after the 2020 result of no fatal accidents for the year.
Monitoring of the S&P Global Market Intelligence Exploration Spend (Sep 2020)
shows exploration spending bottoming out in 2016 and a modest increase for 2017 to 2019 before a slight decrease in 2020. The WWAS, however, indicates a continuing trend downwards of aviation events.
If you have any questions about the report, or if you would like to subscribe anyone to the distribution list, please email BARS@flightsafety.org.
