Fall Protection for Oil Rigs and Drilling Platforms
Although spills and contamination are often cited as main safety concerns associated with offshore oil exploration, your platforms pose significant fall hazards. Offshore oil rig work platforms are typically 100 feet or more above the surface of the ocean, and this height, when combined with the constant motion due to the effects of currents and waves, puts employees and contractors at risk. Land based rigs lack the perpetual motion caused by ocean currents, but they also contain the ladders, derrick platforms, and riser stacks that expose workers to fall hazards.
Whether your organization focuses on offshore or onshore production, ensuring BSEE and OSHA compliance and worker safety requires a comprehensive fall prevention strategy, which includes the proper mix of fall protection equipment, a descent and rescue plan, personnel training, and partnering with a fall protection company that appreciates the unique nature of the potential fall hazards associated with offshore and onshore drilling.
