Bi Deltoid Shoulder Measurements
Industry group, Step Change in Safety in partnership with Robert Gordon University, have pioneered the measurement system based on a passenger’s shoulder width, this has been found to be the most reliable and appropriate measure of body size.
As part of the CAA regulations, all North Sea helicopter passengers need to have the width of their shoulders measured by specifically-trained staff.
Those with a shoulder width of more than 55.9cm (22”) will be classed as extra broad (XBR), and will be allocated a helicopter seat by a window compatible with their shoulder size.
Those with a shoulder width of 55.9cm or less will be classed as Non-XBR.
The Workers Health Fee for the measurement and certification is £50 exc VAT
