Dropped Object Survey

Despite significant efforts by the oil and gas sector to lower the hazards, objects falling from heights continues to be one of the most frequent causes of offshore accidents. Every dropped object control and prevention management system must include Dropped Object Prevention Scheme (DROPS) surveys and inspections. By performing a thorough dropped item survey of dangerous places, EIWAA can assist in preventing a possible dropped object from becoming another unwanted safety statistic. To create a thorough hazards inventory list that is complemented by photos, we do a thorough search of every location.

Dropped object inspections are carried out by EIWAA using apps and packages that are internally designed. We carry out programs in compliance with DROPS society principles, EIWAA’s Falling Objects and Securing of Equipment method, and regulatory and client needs. The latter includes the following specifications for creating and keeping incident-prevention procedures in place.
