Dropped Object Survey

Dropped Object Survey

PROTECT AGAINST DROPPED OBJECT INCIDENTS AND RISK

Dropped objects are those items with the potential to fall from their static position under their own weight. Dropped objects represent a significant safety and operational challenge to any asset owner or operator particularly at onshore and offshore rigs. We help you verify their safety so you can prevent against undue injuries and equipment or environmental damage. Bureau Veritas dropped object surveyors are available to help any asset owner or operator identify, understand and put a plan in place to mitigate dropped object risks, and ensure their regulatory compliance.

USE OUR DROPPED OBJECT SURVEY AND SERVICES TO SECURE THE SAFETY OF YOUR SITE

Bureau Veritas dropped object survey assists clients in identifying dropped object risks in their equipment and system, and helps them initiate corrective actions in time. The main factors that usually contribute to dropped objects include work processes, behaviour, design, environment, and securing of tools and equipment.

Areas where potential exists for dropped objects are inspected by our surveyors at regular intervals to verify the structural integrity of supportive structures, and ensure objects are adequately secured.

We show you how objects should be fitted with secondary retention to prevent them from falling as well as identifying surplus or redundant equipment for removal. All of this is done following a verified dropped object survey scheme.

We also perform regular inspections in specific areas that show possible potential for personnel injury. We assist with specific area mapping in line with the established dropped object prevention guidelines. Our final acceptance criteria and risk rating are based on the combination of dropped object impact calculations and the methodology of risk ranking.
