Many heliports across Australia – most of which are run by hospitals – fail to meet the most basic of safety standards and are overcome with a range of hazards.
Without the adequate use of heliport safety barriers to keep hospital employees and patients at a safe distance, they are at risk of being exposed to hazards associated with helicopters such as the tail rotor and helicopter blades. These blades spin at between 250 and 600 rpm and can cause severe injuries or fatalities to those nearby. Loose objects and items of clothing can also get sucked into the engine air fans causing the helicopter to breakdown or cause injury to those standing in close proximity.
