Safer at Sea – Offshore Oil and Gas Industry

Critical to the functioning of a platform, lifting and moving heavy loads still accounts for unacceptably high rates of injury.

Harken’s ‘strong-but-light’ approach to load handling reduces impact.

The Harken range of blocks, fibrous rope and industry-leading winch technology enables safe, low-friction load management while reducing fatigue and risk of injury.
