The objective of the audit was to monitor how Saipem is ensuring that alarm systems comply with relevant statutory requirements, recognised international standards and guidelines and the company's own requirements and policies. We also focused on assessing the company's routines for regular follow-up of the alarm system performance and its significance for the total workload of drillers and assistant drillers associated with the drilling control room on Scarabeo 8.
One non-conformity was identified in connection with the establishment of performance requirements and deficient routines for regular follow-up of the alarm system.
In addition, an improvement point was identified in connection with the prioritisation of alarms.
Saipem has been given a deadline of 1 June 2016 to report on how the non-conformity and improvement points will be dealt with.
