Video Highlights Dropping Hazard - 17/05/2016

Dropped objects are still happening and still harming. We must never expose ourselves, or others, to the risk of dropped or falling objects. That’s the message in a new video now available to watch on the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) website. The short and highly emotive video highlights the importance of safe working practices to offshore personnel and to their families at home.

The video was prepared by Technip with help from Atlas. As Technip’s Marine Operations Services QHSE director, Pete Somner, and chairman of IMCA’s Marine Division Management Committee, says on the video: “It is by better understanding of our processes and correct use of tools and equipment that we can ensure everyone returns home safely.”

The DROPS Forum has requested that the video be made available across the industry to share good practice, and this has seen Subsea UK, Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) and now IMCA all spreading the word. It is freely available.
