Best Practice Dropped Object Prevention

Dropped objects (DO) present significant safety challenges. Surveys have shown that these challenges relate to a number of factors, including work processes, behaviour, design, and the insufficient securing of equipment.

The handbook was originally produced by Statoil and Working Together for Safety (SfS) , in close collaboration with equipment suppliers and users. The purpose of the handbook is to disseminate knowledge and best practice to the entire industry – we shall not have dropped objects in our industry!
