“A COMPREHENSIVE E-LEARNING TRAINING COURSE FOCUSING ON SUCCESSFULLY MANAGING DROPPED OBJECTS IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY. IT GIVES CANDIDATES AN UNDERSTANDING OF DROPPED OBJECTS AND THEIR CONSEQUENCES, HOW TO ASSESS THE RISKS AND APPLY THE HIERARCHY OF CONTROL MEASURES REQUIRED TO PREVENT DROPPED OBJECTS.”

  
WHY UNDERSTAND DROPS?

Understanding Dropped Objects focuses on successfully managing Dropped Objects in the Oil and Gas Industry. It gives candidates an understanding and education of Dropped Objects and their consequences, how to assess the risks and apply the hierarchy of control measures required to prevent dropped objects. Several gap analysis have been conducted to ensure that it includes and supports current industry best practices, particularly those depicted within the international DROPS Forum.

WHO SHOULD DO THE COURSE?

All personnel, whether onshore or offshore, have varying roles and responsibilities with regards to managing Dropped Objects successfully. All personnel travelling offshore will certainly be made safer and the application of prevention of Dropped Objects measures will become more effective through having this understanding.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

An increased level of knowledge and understanding of the effects of dropped objects. The ability to demonstrate measurable results for individuals and supervisors through the ‘Absorb’ Learning Management System can aid in the continual development of applied competence.

Understanding the importance of Dropped Object awareness and its consequences
Understanding the process of planning, identification and application of suitable control measures in respect of managing Dropped Objects
Understanding the current best practices for securing Dropped Objects
Understanding the processes and systems of managing potential Dropped Objects

WHAT DOES THE COURSE COVER?

with tools and equipment at heights, including an overview of an effective Dropped Object Management System and its application. ‘Understanding Dropped Objects’ is designed to deliver in a clear and consistent / undiluted manner, the following learning objectives:

1. INTRODUCTION
This unit is designed to define the principal of a dropped object, be it dynamic or static and their causes. Furthermore, the unit identifies and explains company and individual roles / responsibilities.

2. PLANNING, IDENTIFICATION & CONTROL
This unit demonstrates the elements within the continuous cycle used to manage drops successfully including (but not limited to) identifying and assessing the hazard and risk. It explains the hierarchy of control, both preventative and mitigating and the importance of monitoring and managing change effectively.

3. MANAGING POTENTIAL DROPPED OBJECTS
This unit guides candidates through conducting a regular, visual and tactile inspection within an established management system in the format that would be supplied by ADC, a format endorsed by the industry’s Drops Forum.

4. SECURING BEST PRACTICES
This unit explains and demonstrates industry best practices with regards to securing methods and safe use of tools and equipment at height. This unit also includes guidance with regards to the safe handling and packaging of cargo to and from offshore installations as described by the Marine safety Forum.

5. ASSESSMENT QUESTIONS
The final unit within the Understanding Dropped Objects course is designed to obtain assessment evidence of the candidate’s understanding of the course content and competencies required to identify, manage and control potential dropped objects. Results gained within this unit, which utilises randomly selected questions, are combined with answers given to particular questions at the end of each of the previous menus to score the level of understanding apparent.
