HEALTH & SAFETY


Dropsafe nets tether fi xtures to prevent dropped objects


upkeep at height and drops a welding tool, engineers on the drill fl oor are at risk of being injured – an incident that would, of course, also shine a light on the company’s inability to comply with Working at Height legislation. Tools, shackles and maintenance equipment are all objects that may fall from unguarded catwalks, stairwells and walkways. Often, cladding or fabric netting


are installed on walkways to protect against the elements and act as a barrier against drops. However, wind strength and lack of ventilation can threaten the integrity of these types of barriers and the structures upon which they are


mounted. Cladding is also diffi cult to inspect, prone to corrosion and time- consuming to maintain and paint – and, moreover, often needs to be custom designed, adding cost. Lightweight technology such as mesh barrier systems, made from lightweight, high-grade plastic and built specifi cally for harsh environments on- and off shore, is seeing increasing adoption as a more versatile alternative to cladding. T ese barriers benefi t from a universal attachment system and can be used as permanent or temporary solutions, saving time and money and allowing safety to be improved more effi ciently.


NEXT STEPS Although the industry is signifi cantly advancing its investment in health and safety for oil and gas personnel,


the number of drops incidents is not substantially decreasing and there is room for improvement. T e good news is that technically


robust and cost-eff ective means of mitigating the major dropped object risks are available. Moving forward, fi rms need to stay proactive in their adoption of these high-performance solutions, demonstrating a fi rm commitment to ‘self-regulate’ and stay on top of this threat to both personnel and reputation. ●
