  13. 13. What measures are effective? Work on the list of measures for the industry. Most companies have still a way to go.. Integration of dropped objects in the overall management system • investigations • reporting and follow-up after incidents (not classifying away) • training • communication of best practice • focus on potential dropped objects Good traditional HSE work • involvement of everyone in the organization • starting by obtaining ownership by management • continuous attention on the topic • use time on the topic Clear requirements towards contractors • audits and supervision • requirements in contracts 14
  14. 14. Common factor or root cause for dropped objects? • The answer was yes – lack of compliance/adherence • We accordingly began to work on measures to improve compliance/adherence • Feedback from the questionnaire • A clear desire for better training on and knowledge 15
  15. 15. There is no excuse for lack of compliance/adherence • Tools and knowledge are easily available. • Use the tools. • Consequences are communicated. • Everybody has a personal responsibility • for adherence of procedures • “take a step forward” when he/she see erosion of standards • Disciplinary reactions when individuals expose their colleagues or themselves for dropped objects. • Life is fragile 16
  16. 16. A simple issue 1) Reducing the number of dropped objects should be a simple issues to handle 2) If we fail to succeed with such a simple topic, will we be prepared to deal with more complex issues? 17
  17. 17. Use time on dropped objects • Involvement creates ownership 18
  18. 18. The dropped objects project was finalized late 2012, but attention will continue to be paid through Working Together for Safety and Norwegian Oil and Gas’ commitment to improved personal safety on the Norwegian continental shelf. 19
