After the successful launch of the Dropsafe BarrierTM at Offshore Energy 2017, Dropsafe returns to the RAI Convention Center in Amsterdam for Offshore Energy 2018.
The risks to personnel and assets from dropped objects is well understood in the oil and gas industry. Efforts to mitigate the dangers spear headed by DROPS, the energy industry organisation Dropped Object Prevention Scheme (www.dropsonline.org). However, awareness of the risks presented by dropped objects in the offshore renewable energy is slowly awakening. The offshore wind industry has always been aware of the risks to life and assets from heavy lifting. However, it has taken time to appreciate that smaller objects falling from height also presents significant risks. In 2017, the G+ Global Offshore Wind Health & Safety Organisation commenced a significant initiative to understand and control these risks. This initiative will continue to raise the profile of these significant risks.
In 2017, Dropsafe introduced the new Barrier system to the European offshore energy industry. The Barrier helps mitigate the risk of objects falling through the railings of walkways and gangways. This strong, lightweight and cost effective barrier system provides an immediate solution to dropped object risks from wind turbine transition pieces or walk to work gangways. The Dropsafe Barrier partners with Dropsafe NetsTM to provide both horizontal and vertical dropped object prevention solutions. Dropsafe Nets are patented safety devices, which securely enclose and tether overhead fixtures to prevent dropped and falling objects. Simple and effective, Dropsafe Nets and Dropsafe Barriers are instant safety solutions available for a variety of offshore scenarios.
