DROPS Asia Forum - 23 June 2022

Despite great improvements, the drilling industry consistently reports dropped objects among their top causes of (potential) incidents. We have developed many preventive measures such as routine inspections and robust securing methods. When these fail, we rely on mitigating measures to prevent personnel from becoming harmed.  If a dropped object occurs that has the potential to cause harm, we should ask ourselves if we had predicted this possible outcome and took measures to prevent harm or if we were caught by surprise. It’s the difference between failing safely and failing lucky.

Watch the panel discussion with Shi Beng Hooi (Shell Malaysia), David Jamieson (Bowtie Master), William Lai (Baker Hughes) and Joachim van der Meulen (DROPS Asia) on the subject Fail Safe or Fail Lucky.
