Drops Survey & Management

Inspections for localizing potential “dropped objects” have been developed by major companies over the last decade to prevent dropped object related accidents and to teach new behaviors in matter of “dropped objects” prevention.

The “dropped objects” have indeed been targeted by all the HSE departments of the Oil and Gas industry as being the most critical hazard, all types of works combined. When a tiny piece of steel falls from even 1m high, it can have a fatal consequence. And a fatality cannot be afforded. All your workers shall go back home free of injury. 

Dolphin Oil and Gas consultancy LLC offers to perform a full survey of your installation to detect and list existing hazards. On the offshore work sites, cranes and other pipes elevators are moving and lifting items all day long, while people are busy working around on other tasks on an often very congested deck. Those people might not always be aware at all times of what is happening above or next to them.

In addition to these life threatening hazards, “dropped objects” can also damage your installation, structure or equipment, which can lead to loss of time, loss of production or loss of containment of hazardous material.

The inspection that Dolphin Oil and Gas consultancy LLC offers your company to carry out is a full detection survey of all the “loose” or “getting loose” items that could potentially fall and cause an accident. A detailed report including pictures and exact location of those identified items will be issued to your company, as well as a list of corrective recommended actions. This report should be a database register that should be used to follow-up and monitor the actions taken. It shall be part of a bigger QA/QC process where status of actions has to be clearly reported.

Here below are few examples of the potentially hazardous items:

  • Crane structures (load cells, wind walls, cameras, sheaves)
  • Walkways (handrails, gratings, ladders)
  • Non-used equipment (old rusty and corroded devices that could fall down)
  • Temporary equipment brought on site and not removed (toolboxes, lights, painting cans, welding equipment)
  • Electrical equipment (junction boxes, CCTV cameras, loudspeakers, cables trays)

Dolphin Human resources consultancy LLC has trained and qualified inspector teams who are able to conduct a “dropped objects” inspection on each kind of facilities you may have. It can be a drilling rig, a derrick, a FPS, a working platform, a construction vessel or any onshore facility.

We are one of the leading providers of Dropped Object Surveys and associated support services to the oil and gas Industry for about two years. Our customers include drilling contractors and operators, Worldwide. 

Our core business activities involve drilling structures this means that every element of what we design, build and install has dropped objects considerations from design to installation by our offshore construction personnel. Therefore consideration for the avoidance of dropped objects is intertwined in almost all of our business activities.

In the interests of reducing risk we have seen the dropped object surveys broaden its remit in recent years to now cover the whole installation, and our surveys have evolved to cover all of the relevant areas for you, to the extent that we now offer one of the most comprehensive services available. 

We have however, retained our approach to these inspections as being as practical and pro-active to ensure that we solve as many issues as possible on site, so as to reduce or eliminate the amount faults/failures in the report and to reduce items to be attended to going forward.  

We are able to conduct dropped object surveys of all types of structure and surveys can range in scale from simple removal of loose items to a complete inventory of equipment within the structure, assessment of the integrity of fittings and secondary retention and creation of a DROPS Picture Book to allow non-specialist client staff to conduct interim inspections.

We pride ourselves on a proactive approach and as well as taking any safety critical remedial action needed, our post survey reports include detailed recommendations for future maintenance / inspection.
