Preventing Accidents on Offshore Drilling Platforms

Rolloos Red Zone Monitoring + Aegex Intrinsically Safe Solutions

The Challenge

Offshore drilling platforms are dangerous work environments where personnel perform tasks in the same areas where heavy equipment is operating. These areas are known as “red zones” for their great safety risk. Personnel working in or near red zones must improve their situational awareness in order to prevent accidents.​
