October Gold Ballooning 2003

29th August 07

We were approached by OGB a commercial hot air balloon company who required a Health and Safety policy developing. This led to one of our most interesting appointments. OGB were required to meet Civil Aviation Authority requirements to develop a Safety Management System. Following considerable research we established that guidance did not exist for an SMS for a ballooning operation. OGB had a target for submission to the CAA of three months. SRM developed the first draft and revised the document following CAA comments within the time frame set by OGB, who became the first commercial ballooning company in the UK to have developed an SMS meeting CAA approval.

We were offered a free flight but having learnt how the balloon is landed decided that the risks were too significant.
