OCG on latest report into Bergen helicopter tragedy


Responding to publication of the latest report into the Bergen helicopter tragedy, Tommy Campbell, chair of the Offshore Coordinating Group (OCG) of trade unions said:


“The Accident Investigation Board Norway (AIBN)  report is a further development in the investigation process, but it is just part of that process. The OCG will await the outcome of investigations aimed at providing proof around what caused the tragedy in Norway and thereafter we will react to those findings.


“The OCG accepts and fully understands the concerns of our respective members and their families, and the OCG trade unions will continue to support members during this period. There is no question of this aircraft type coming back into service anytime soon as a consequence of these latest findings. If that position changes, we will engage with our members to determine a position”.





The OCG was recently established to coordinate trade union policy and campaigns in the oil and gas sector. The following unions are members of the OCG: Unite, RMT, GMB, BALPA and Nautilus International.
