What Is a Dropped Object Survey?

When one of Lloyds British International Bahrain’s engineer arrives to do a Dropped object survey what exactly do they do? Well on a survey we will check off the following criteria. With the help of our specialist team we conduct a thorough inspection and detailed survey of tools, equipment, structural assets of the rig in order to to identify potential dropped object threats, incidents, and scenarios. Once the inspection is complete this information is then all compiled into a report to achieve the following the objectives. Each object surveyed is documented including it’s location,  a picture of the object, a description of the object, the objects unique id number and discusses primary securing methods and secondary retention methods. The object is then either given a pass or fail detailing comments for why it is satisfactory or the reason for failure. The failed items are placed on a seperate list. Lloyds British International will then map out safe and not so safe areas using a colour code system. This is all presented with a risk mitigation and risk assessment plan as per a customers specific requirements.

How Does the Our Colour Coding System Work in a Dropped Object Survey?

Green Zones

The Green Zone

This where the layout and activities of the area present a minimal likelihood of personnel being exposed to potential dropped objects under normal circumstances. This would be classed as an area where any authorised personnel can enter unless any additional barriers are in place

Yellow Zones

The Yellow Zone

In the yellow zone only personnel with specific tasks and authorisation in that zone may enter. All others require the Area Authority’s permission to enter or work in that zone.

Red Zones

The Red Zone

This is where the layout and activities of the area present a significant risk to personnel being exposed to potential dropped objects under normal circumstances. Personnel are more exposed to falling objects, the movement of remotely operated equipment, high pressure, and/or other hazards as determined by risk assessment. Personnel in RedZone must be required for the current operation.

After establishing zones, what equipment are in each zones and the risks applicable to each zone Lloyds British International then implement safe access routes and procedures as per the risk assessment in order to ensure the effect of the Dropped Object Survey is met.
