Dropped Objects Prevention Scheme or DROPS is the industry-wide initiative focused on preventing dropped objects, with the ultimate goal of delivering a second nature dropped objects prevention strategy across the industry. As member of this global work group, D-OCEAN is able to prevent potential dropped object by conducting regular surveys and rectification works in accordance with the DROPS best practices. This in turn reduces costs for our clients in comparison to the implications when someone is injured or when properties are damaged by falling objects. Below are the areas where the DROPS survey is usually conducted on a rig.
