Oil and Gas
Working in the oil and gas industry presents different challenges to other industries. You’ll have more extreme weather conditions to contend with at sea. The risks posed by dropped objects can be significant and costly.
As well as the obvious risk to other workers, dropped objects can pose a risk to your rig. Tools can cause damage as they fall. The chance of deflection off part of the framework is high. If they plummet into the sea they’re irretrievably lost. This can be costly, in terms of repairing damage to the framework and replacing often expensive pieces of equipment.
You’ll already have strict tool management processes in place. Tool tethering can introduce an additional level of safety. As well as preventing tools from being dropped it also prevents them from being left behind. You know all too well that misplaced tools can become hazards when conditions change.
A tool tethering system for the oil and gas industry will:
- Prevent damage to the rig that can be caused by dropped objects
- Prevent expensive tools and equipment being lost or damaged
- Ensure all tools are returned after a job and stored safely when not in use
- Be designed for use in challenging conditions and able to withstand the harsh conditions on rigs.
As DROPS Online states, “Dropped objects are consistently the third most frequent cause of fatality and serious injury in the Oil and Gas Industry.”
