About this group

This group is to help spread the campaign to improve the safety of pilot ladders and pilot transfer arrangements.

Every survey says approx. 20% of arrangements are non-compliant. If they're non-compliant, they're not safe so they shouldn't be used!

Let's reduce the 20% by engagement, education and enforcement.
