The audit was conducted from 14 to 18 June 2021. 


The objective of the audit was to monitor how Equinor manages and ensures a safe organisational and psychosocial working environment, and prevents musculoskeletal disorders among its own personnel at the Mongstad facility. 


Five non-conformities were identified, relating to: 

  • Analysis of the working environment 
  • Planning and measures 
  • Continuous improvement 
  • Training and information about health risks in the working environment 
  • Arrangements for employee participation 

We also identified one improvement point concerning the design of visual boards. 

What happens now? 

We have asked Equinor to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed. The company has also been asked for its assessment of the improvement point identified. The deadline for this is set at 8 October 2021.
