Mitigating Dropped Object threats in the Power Generation industry with versatile, innovative and cost-effective prevention solutions

A Persistent Threat to Routine Operations

 

Activity at large-scale Power Generation facilities often comes in bursts. Conducting essential routine maintenance, for example, is a substantial undertaking, involving the deployment of specialist technicians, many of whom work at height in the vicinity of critical infrastructure.

During these resource intensive maintenance periods, mitigating the dual risk to personnel and equipment posed by dropped objects from walkways and stairwells is a core concern for plant owners and their maintenance teams.

Dropped Objects at Power Generation sites pose a persistent threat and come in many forms. Fixtures such as lights and cameras can come loose from their brackets due to vibration. Additionally, communication devices and hand-held maintenance tools can be dropped by technicians onto walkways and platforms at height. As a result, they risk being kicked off and falling to the facility floor below.

 

Mitigating The Risk

 

Dropsafe works with developers and operators in the Power Generation industry to develop robust and versatile Dropped Object prevention technology without sacrificing value and cost efficiency.

The Dropsafe Barrier, the Dropsafe Net and the Dropsafe Pouch have been engineered to prevent items such as those carried by personnel when working at height from falling and becoming a Dropped Object.

Working directly with facility owners and site managers, Dropsafe also develops custom solutions for mitigating the risk of Dropped Objects, creating bespoke systems to meet market and technology-specific requirements.

Power Generation: The Dropsafe Barrier

Dropsafe Barrier mitigates dropped object risks during essential maintenance operations at one of Asia’s largest coal fired power stations

In order to ensure the safety of technicians working at height as well as those working beneath, it is imperative that measures are taken to mitigate dropped object risks. This is especially critical during maintenance operations when there is a dramatic increase in the number of personnel and equipment on site.

The installation of several thousand metres of Dropsafe’s Barrier system at of one of Asia’s premier power company’s flagship facilities was not only quick to install and cost effective, but also tackled a major safety risk within the industry.

While the initial plan was to install the system covering maintenance periods, the customer later opted to keep the system in place permanently due to its robustness and long-term durability.

This introduction has encouraged other companies to follow suit, comprehensively mitigating the risk of dropped objects and setting a benchmark amongst all power generation businesses.

Report: Slipping Through The Cracks

‘Slipping Through The Cracks’ recognises the budgetary limitations of HSE managers and the fact there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution to the problem of Dropped Objects, allowing organisations to make effective decisions when buying Drops prevention Barriers.
