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.

The Future of Safety Training: DROPS Metaverse at the IADC HSE & Sustainability Conference Amsterdam

The International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) always leads in promoting drilling safety. Their HSE & Sustainability Europe 2023 Conference & Exhibition will showcase the latest in safety. One session stands out: the use of Virtual Reality (VR) for safety training, focusing on the DROPS Metaverse.

DROPS Metaverse: Leading Safety Training’s Next Wave

The DROPS Asia Chapter launched the DROPS Metaverse. It aims to transform safety training using Virtual Reality. This platform offers a new way to learn about dropped object hazard prevention.

Users can explore scenarios, see the effects of dropped objects, and learn prevention best practices. The DROPS Metaverse also lets industry professionals connect, acting like a virtual trade show.

You can access the DROPS Metaverse with a VR headset or a computer. It promises a fresh look at safety training, going beyond traditional methods.

IADC’s Focus on VR and the DROPS Metaverse

The IADC 2023 Conference will highlight VR’s role in safety training. Nicole Huong from Shell and Joachim van der Meulen from the DROPS Asia Chapter will speak. They’ll discuss how top organizations, like Shell Malaysia, collaborate in the DROPS Asia Chapter. Their goal? Develop VR training modules in the DROPS Metaverse.

This session will show VR’s benefits over old training methods. As VR becomes more common, its role in the drilling industry grows.


IADC and Shell’s focus on the DROPS Metaverse shows VR’s potential in safety training. As technology advances, platforms like the DROPS Metaverse point to a new direction for safety training in drilling. The future looks immersive and digital.
