This workshop report draws upon outputs from the second G9 Safe by Design workshop held in March 2015. The workshop explored a number of key topics associated with emergency escape from the nacelle in the event of fire (including fire suppression and mitigation, emergency escape equipment, personal protective equipment [PPE], emergency escape training and competency requirements).

In 2014, the Crown Estate asked the G9 to take over the running and delivery of their Safe by Design workshops. By bringing the Safe by Design workshops into the G9 work programme, the G9 aims to explore industry operations and technologies with a focus on Safe by Design principles.

Each G9 workshop will examine the current design controls relating to a particular topic, discuss where current design has potentially failed, identify opportunities for improvement and then seek to demonstrate the potential risk reduction to be gained from these new ways of thinking. The findings from each workshop will also be made freely available in reports which can be downloaded from the G9 website.
