How DROPS Works

Cargo Handling Guidelines, developed by DROPS, based on industry best practice.

Our basic remit is to consider all avenues available for improving the industry’s dropped object prevention performance.

We then distil and identify the key learnings and deliver these back into the industry in the form of awareness, best practice, recommendations, lessons, tools and techniques.

Specific focus groups within DROPS work each key issue to its conclusion as an effective deliverable product, eg a presentation, a best practice, a poster, a procedure etc. DROPS members meet at regular forums where progress is reviewed, focus areas are prioritised, new technologies / services are presented and we all share best practice and lessons learned in an open and collaborative environment.
