The DROPS Awareness eLearning Course is an interactive learning program that explores how industry prevents dropped objects at the worksite and at each stage of project lifecycles. 

Delivered at an awareness level, it covers the DROPS Recommended Practice in it's entirety, and will give the learner an appreciation of where and how dropped objects occur and how we can prevent and control them across a wide range of activities.

The training is based upon Industry and DROPS Forum lessons learned and associated best practices. The training is suitable for offshore and onshore audiences and captures the best practice and lessons learned by the DROPS Workgroup and its members.

The DROPS Awareness eLearning Course is also available in Spanish!
