Dropsafe Barrier

Description

The Dropsafe Barrier is a robust and versatile modular barrier system for the prevention of Dropped Object incidents.

How the Dropsafe Barrier works

When work is taking place at height, items such as tools, hard hats, two-way radios and maintenance equipment can fall through open guardrailing, stairways and elevated work platforms

The Dropsafe Barrier is a modular barrier system, consisting of impact and heat-resistant panels, with small a honeycomb aperture.

The versatile system attaches along the inside of the guardrailing of elevated walkways, stairways and access ways of permanent or temporary structures, using a universal attaching system. In doing so, the Dropsafe Barrier prevents loose items slipping through cracks and falling from height

Case Studies

Commercial Roll-Out: The Dropsafe Barrier

The Dropsafe Barrier system installed on a flagship drill ship, thus mitigating the threat of Dropped Objects to personnel safety and protecting the integrity of drillship structures and equipment.

The dynamic environment and wide variety of tools and items used in offshore drilling lends itself to a greater likelihood of dropped object incidents within the industry.

As a result of one major drilling contractor’s drive to create a “Zero Incident” environment and establish a world-class Drops programme, over 700m of the Dropsafe Barrier was installed on a flagship vessels.

The installation focused on red zones and areas with a greater risk of drops, such as above the drill floor, around the drill pipe deck, along the pipe skate and rise crane walkways, and on transfer decks.

The successful installation of the robust Dropsafe Barrier panels on this flagship drilling vessel was so effective that it has become an integral part of the company’s HSE strategy; the Barrier is now the recommended and preferred solution for dropped object risk mitigation across the entire fleet.

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.
