DROPS

An effective Dropped Objects Prevention Scheme (DROPS) plays an important role in supporting the safety practices of a platform.

Our team will scan an area for any potential falling hazards with the aim of preventing future dropped objects.

This can cover everything from lost fittings to pipe clamps and ladders to hand rails and includes the checking of all primary and secondary securings. We check for potential static and dynamic dropped objects.

A drops study can be performed on its own or in addition to any Sparrows Group workscope.

Sparrows Group is an active member of the offshore industry’s DROPS forum and has carried out this work across offshore platforms and drillships.
