The audit was conducted from 10 to 21 May 2021 and included follow-up of materials handling, lifting equipment and launching arrangements including working environment risk and employee participation at Hod B in the completion phase.


The objective of the audit was to verify arrangements for materials handling, cranes and lifting activities on the facility, which is normally unmanned. We wanted to verify the company’s own requirements and those of the authorities against the operational, organisational and technical conditions. Working environment risk and employee participation in the project were also verified.


We did not identify any non-conformities during the audit.

We identified three improvement points concerning:

  • Materials handling
  • Materials handling plan
  • Arrangements for handling hazard and accident situations

What happens next?

We have asked Aker BP for their assessment of the improvement points observed. The reply deadline is set at 16 August 2021.
