Summary

Since the 1st April 2015, it has been a requirement for all helicopter passengers travelling offshore in the UK to have their shoulder width measurements completed, recorded and uploaded to Vantage. The purpose of this measurement is to ensure that helicopter passengers are compatible with the nearest underwater escape exit.

Objectives

The shoulder width measurement consists of the following:

  • A specially trained measurer will take measurements with an approved set of callipers will record and upload the results
  • The measurements are taken across the upper arm and must be completed against the skin to ensure accurate results
