Anyway, sorry for going off.
I see they are now treating it as a recovery operation. * bodies found but there was 16 on board? Things will have to change
Everybody looks sick and depressed going offshore!
Things will have to change but I doubt they will.
I was at the safety meeting for the Centrica chopper that went down. The Centrica safety lad said the PLB's went off fine and alerted the rig and CG. One worker raised his hand and said where did you get your information. Safety lad produces graphs and what not showing time of impact and when the PLB's were activated.
The worker said they were wrong, when asked how he knew he told him "I set the alarm off"
He witnessed it and set it off from the control room yet the HSE still argue he didn't.
Another PLB went off the next day but was ignored as a false alarm... one person is still missing from that crash.
