These guidelines is support continuous improvement in managing health and safety risks to and from helicopter operations, enabling safe development of the global offshore wind industry. They aim to help the industry integrate helicopter operations safely into projects, taking an approach appropriate and proportionate to the operational context and its risk profile.

These guidelines are relevant to:
− Organisations with a responsibility for the overall safety of the offshore wind energy project that use, or are considering using, helicopters to support the project. 
− Supply chain organisations that contract helicopter services, such as maintenance providers.
− Organisations that are not the helicopter contract owner, but have their employees transported by helicopter.
− Organisations that do not intend to use helicopters in their normal activities, but who may require helicopter assistance in emergencies or to meet a 'one-off' requirement, and so need to facilitate this through appropriate planning, design and operation.
