Safety Precautions

Every effort is made to ensure that interactions with the helicopter will be safe. When working around the helicopter, several safety regulations must be followed.
  • Never approach the aircraft (running or not) until signaled to do so by the pilot or crew member. 
  • Always approach the aircraft from the front.
  • Always walk carefully when near the aircraft, never run.
  • Never carry or hold anything above your head. Lower any IV poles on beds prior to approaching. 
  • Never wear loose clothing or hats while working around a running aircraft. 
  • Never chase or run after any dropped or loose articles. Inform the crew and if needed the aircraft will be shut-down. 
Tail-rotor Safety
  • Never approach the tail rotor of a running helicopter. 
  • The speed of the tail rotor may make it difficult to be seen. 
  • Very strong winds exist around and near the tail rotor.
Landing Zone Safety
  • Provide area 100 feet by 100 feet of clear, level area. 
  • Ensure no wires, trees, light poles or other objects are inside or over the landing area.
  • Look in all directions outside of the landing zone and identify any possible hazards. 
  • Keep vehicles 50 feet from aircraft. 
  • Keep all onlookers and non-essential personnel 100 feet from landing zone. 
  • Aircraft create significant downdraft, protect eyes by looking away from landing aircraft. 
  • Secure all loose or light articles prior to arrival of aircraft. 
  • Never shine white lights directly at the helicopter.
Landing zone safety classes are available. Please complete an outreach education request form or email us if you would like to schedule a landing zone class at your facility. Paul Hubbard, Program Director Amy Jo Wess, Clinical Coordinator Paul Edwards, Training Coordinator
