Another Nomination for Jan de Nul

IADC has announced another nomination running to receive the Safety Award 2019 award – Jan de Nul’s hopper crew designed, built and installed a safety platform to protect their crewmates.

After each dredge cycle on a trailing suction hopper dredger, the pipe operator must grease and/or inspect the underwater block of the hoisting dredge pipe.

This is a dangerous job on a slippery and uneven surface. To carry out the work, the pipe operator normally needs to wear a ‘fall arrest’ harness and prepare extensive risk management paperwork, a time consuming task.

This process on Jan De Nul’s hopper Charles Darwin is now a thing of the past. The crew of the Charles Darwin has designed, built and installed a platform, with railings, access ladders and grip polls that allow safer access to the dredge pipe’s underwater block.

The platform, ladders and railings are installed on the dredge pipe at the exact location of the underwater block, which reduces the chance of trips, slips and falls.
