The DROPS Metaverse is an initiative by the DROPS (Dropped Object Prevention Scheme) Asia Chapter to create a forward-looking learning and collaboration platform in Virtual Reality.

Using a VR headset, windows or mac, you can enter a multiplayer 3D environment which has been curated for you to learn all about dropped object hazard prevention. Using a customized avatar, you will be able to navigate various scenarios to experience the impact of dropped objects, identify potential hazards, and learn about the various best practices for prevention. During our regular events, you can use the same avatar to meet with industry professionals just as if you were at a trade show.

How does this relate to DROPS and the DROPS Metaverse?

  • Shell Malaysia will be presenting how they have incorporated the DROPS Metaverse into their face-to-face drops training and assist and assure program using Virtual Reality
  • Experience the DROPS Metaverse at several of the exhibitors include Stopdrop Tooling, Dropsafe and Axess Group and learn how you might incorporate it in your own DROPS Training Program.
  • Transocean will present a innovative system that ensures safe access to the drill floor by controlling the entry of personnel and recognizing them automatically. The system tracks the location of personnel and equipment on the drill floor, and differentiates between authorized and unauthorized personnel, effectively eliminating any possibility of collisions between human workers and moving machines. With HaloGuard, there is a significant improvement in the control and monitoring of access to the drill floor, and the equipment can be stopped when necessary to prevent any potential accidents or injuries.
