Dropped Objects Prevention

Safety at work is of utmost important when working on elevated platforms especially if there are personnel or contractors working underneath. Dropped objects are still, unfortunately, a common contributor to severe accidents in industrial facilities across different sectors globally.

The accidental dropping of tools and equipment poses a very real risk to safety of workers operating at elevated heights. It is therefore important offshore development sites have systems in place to reduce the occurrence of such incidents. Studies have shown that the impact of an object weighing less than three pounds can be fatal when dropped from a height of 30 feet or more.

Objects known to frequently cause accidents are hand tools or equipment left behind after a task, as well as equipment mounted in an elevated location that has the potential to fall due to movement or environmental conditions.

CableSafe offer a broad array of dropped item prevention tools to protect employees from potentially harmful injuries and accidents in a wide range of working environments within industrial facilities. The Dropped Objects Prevention Work Mat is a perfect example of this. The CableSafe work mat is highly effective in protecting personnel and contractors from dropped objects.
