TRAC operates under a high standard HSEQ system. We are proud of our health and safety record that is second to none. We have recently been awarded an FPAL rating of 9.0 for health and safety.
We aim to conduct all operations in a safe manner, with full consideration to Health, Safety and Environmental issues. We seek co-operation from all involved to sustain and improve services provided and to achieve, as far as possible, zero incidents. Recent HSE initiatives and programmes that TRAC is involved in include:
Industry Memberships – TRAC maintains membership to a variety of relevant bodies including IRATA, HOIS, BINDT, DROPS, Step Change in Safety and British Safety Council. Our management team regularly attend and participate in industry best practice events and disseminate lessons learned throughout our workforce. In addition, our certification to ISO9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 places a requirement on us to ensure that we regularly evaluate our compliance with legal and other requirements. We do this via internal audits, housekeeping checks and other reviews of the system. We have a subscription with Croner and are members of the British Safety Council to facilitate interpretation of legal requirements, but also carry out our own checks of reliable sources (HSE, Netregs etc).

‘Think Safety’ Campaign – We issue a monthly campaign to all employees and clients. This is done to keep everyone focused on pertinent HSE topics and utilised to raise the profile on specific issues within the industry.
Dropped Object Survey (DROPS)
Dropped objects are not a new issue but, following the formation of DROPS and associated safety criteria, they are now a topical issue. It is important to improve safety by removing the potential for dropped objects which could have caused death or injury to the workforce.
We can survey your entire asset, items include but are not limited to:
- Piping & Equipment
- Toe Boards
- Swing Gates
- Flood Lights
- CCTV Cameras
- Junction Boxes
- Cable trays
DROPS and other criterion also apply to rigging, temporary and portable equipment. Click here to find out more about TRAC’s Lifting Equipment Inspection Capabilities (LEEA).
Non-conforming items include, but are not limited to, those which have:
- been weather damaged
- been subject to prolonged or excessive vibration
- been subject to corrosion
Following a DROPS survey, TRAC provides detailed reports including photographs which notify of objects or items requiring immediate action. Non-conformance’s can be rectified or repaired during or immediately following the survey.
When all non-conformance’s have been addressed, a library of images can be collected for all items with dropped object potential onboard. This would provide a point of reference, benefiting future continuous survey regimes.
