Oceaneering - Norway Forum - August 2016


Ole-Christian Fjeld Oceaneering

Oceaneering’s most severe HIPO of this year was from a dropped object and they acknowledge these incidents can happen anywhere at any time. Ole gave a short presentation that described the initiatives Oceaneering have undertaken to help prevent dropped objects. These focus on eliminating or engineering out work at height, where practicable. A Work at Height Lifesaving Rule is embedded in their Safety Management Systems. They apply the guidelines documented in the SfS Dropped Objects Handbook (aka Reliable Securing elsewhere). Their processes and procedures include dropped object checklists and regular DROPS sweeps. On their facilities, they use specifically designed “Tools at Height” Toolkits.
