Safeguard Helideck Certification (SHC) are a helideck certification agency that specialises in Maritime Aviation for luxury Superyacht Helidecks. Our Helideck Certification Officers come from a Royal Navy background and bring decades of experience in the safe management of helicopter operations at sea.
As a helideck certification agency, we offer expert consultancy support at all stages of a Helideck Landing Area lifecycle. Our Helideck Certification Officers work closely with design teams on early concepts to ensure that the initial ideas meet the requirements of the regulations. We regularly carry out thorough on-board assessments for Helicopter Landing Area Certificates (HLAC) and offer consultancy for any owner/operator required improvements or alterations to an existing Helideck area, ensuring these changes will be compliant with the regulations.
Safeguard Helideck Certification (SHC) is a specialist division of Safeguard Engineering Ltd, an independent Safety Engineering Consultancy supporting clients in the Defence, Commercial, Maritime Aviation and Leisure Marine industries.
We are well known within the Superyacht world as a trusted helideck certification agency and our Helideck Certification Officers have recently presented a paper on Helideck Certification in Genoa at the RINA Conference (May 2019).
We also understand the need to respond quickly when required. Our fastest response time has been a flight out to a superyacht within 24 hours of the initial enquiry call being made. Our helideck certification agency operation is global, and we can travel wherever we are required bringing all our own equipment with us.
