Management of Change on Drill Rigs

Graham Marshall - Monday, December 10, 2012

This week, starting Monday 10th of December, I'm dedicating the Risk Tool Box blog to a fantastic series of important safety alerts put out by APPEA down-under in Australia.

Starting today, you can read this safety alert regarding the importance of having a thorough Management of Change (MOC) process for any changes which are made to a facility.

In the example shown here, a walkway on an onshore drill-rig was modified, but insufficient MOC was performed and the walkway later collapsed under load with two rig hands standing on the walkway.

Thankfully, neither of the workers was injured.  But the potential was there for very serious consequences.
