DROPS Inspections and Enterprise of Competence

Falling objects are a major problem in all worksites. AAK Energy offer guidance and inspections to systematically reduce the possibility of falling objects.

Prevention of Falling Objects (DROPS Inspection)

It is well known that much of the equipment on an offshore installation is either incorrectly mounted or not designed for a long life at sea. Prevention of falling objects is carried out regularly at all offshore installations to uncover conditions that pose an immediate or future risk.

AAK Energy perform DROPS inspections with multidisciplinary teams, with a focus on rectifying errors, deficiencies, and deviations continuously while our inspection team is on site. This reduces the need for further follow-up of the equipment and provides a cost-effective use of time and resources. The inspection is documented with photos, location, action, and relevant references. Findings that cannot be remedied on site are given recommended action and are also prioritized based on severity.

We provide the following services related to the prevention of falling objects:

  • Falling object inspection (DROPS-Inspection)
  • Corrections and corrective measures of dangerous conditions
  • Course in observation techniques and securing tools
  • E-learning course in falling objects
  • Make-safe campaigns
