IRATA’s Health, Safety & Technical Advisor, David Thomas, was delighted to be invited to give a presentation at the DROPS Forum on 27th April, held in Aberdeen. Following David’s presentation, Drops representative Greg Reid stated:
“Our Steering Committee and Management Team agree that IRATA membership and support for DROPS would bring added benefit and provide opportunities for us to work together in the continuous review and alignment of our best practice recommendations. As our organisations are both established globally, we anticipate many more opportunities for IRATA representatives to share lessons learned in the pursuit of improvements in dropped object prevention performance. It would be our pleasure to share the elements of our Best Practice Recommendations with regard to Training and Awareness and trust you may find relevant information and resources that may be suitable for your candidates”
The IRATA Executive Committee will meet in June 2017, and will be discussing opportunities for collaboration with the Drops organisation.
IRATA International would like to take the opportunity to thank Greg Reid and his team for their invitation to explore organisational synergies in the interest of best practice.
