The first SafetyOn Safe by Design workshop in the SafetyOn work programme was on working under suspended loads during major component exchanges.

The workshop, using a pre-prepared bow tie risk analysis, and comprising several data gathering and data analysis activities, was held in Glasgow on 20 November 2019.

The workshop format was developed to explore, challenge and improve the controls in place to prevent a dropped load during major component exchanges. It also covered the recovery mitigations in the event of a dropped load.
