The European Helicopter Safety Team has released a new risk assessment toolkit. Dubbed MARIA (for My Risk Assessment for Incidents and Accidents), it includes a methodology and a database system to support safety studies and track hazards and other risk assessment elements. MARIA was developed by Capt. Stefano Burigana, safety manager of corporate/VIP operator Elilombarda, and revised by the EHEST Operations and Safety Management System specialist team to assist operators in developing better risk assessments.
Elilombarda is a corporate/VIP operator based in Calcinate del Pesce on Italy’s Lake Varese, northwest of Milan. You can find MARIA here
