We offer a smoke-free work environment and smoke-free staff accommodations. We encourage our employees to live a smoke-free and healthy lifestyle. We have sponsored various company team sporting activities, to reflect our encouragement of healthy choices. We provide our employees with health related information, through our online digital information system.
Aurora Helicopters has developed a Safety & Loss Prevention Program, which rewards positive contributions to our Quality & Safety culture, and provides a “Just Culture” model for responding to situations where employees have failed to live up to our Quality & Safety standards.
Aurora Helicopters has a Drug & Alcohol Policy in place which allows for pre-employment screen, pre-job screening as required, and post-incident screening.
Our Quality Assurance process includes the following steps: auditing of all functional areas, identification of areas of non-conformance (and areas for improvement), analysis of root cause(s), identification of corrective actions, verification of performance of corrective actions, assessment of effectiveness of corrective actions, repeating until each finding is deemed to have been effectively mitigated.
Aurora Helicopters is aware of its responsibilities with respect to OH&S and strives to exceed the standards. We have a Safety Committee in place which is led by our Safety Coordinator. Our OH&S includes Aviation OS&H (AOSH) for employees within the aircraft, and federal Canadian OS&H (COSH) for our aviation employees outside of the aircraft. Our non-aviation employees fall under Alberta OH&S as well.
In order to meet client requirements, we are registered with several third party OH&S registry firms, who look after due diligence for their client “owners”, who are typically larger Oil & Gas producers and mid-stream companies. We are currently registered with ISNetworld, CanQual, ComplyWorks, and Avetta (formerly PICS). We are also audited on behalf of several clients by third party Aviation Safety Consultancies, including Contrail Aviation, Hart Aviation and Marsh Insurance.
