Statistics of the dropped object incidents that have occurred in the North Sea over 12 assets to end of August. Note a rising trend identifies cladding and cable tray incidents as repeat offenders. Several specific incidents were reviewed, including an animation of a dropped ESDV Guide Plate with lessons to be learned around lifting operations. Analysis shows the top 5 causes of dropped objects relate to Inadequate Securing; Inadequate Maintenance; Corrosion; Failed Fixtures and Fittings; Poor Hazard and Risk Assessment. An internal focus group was created and they now meet monthly to seek improvement. The animation will be available to DROPS Members with the next Campaign Pack update (Feb 2018).
