The audit was conducted from 23 to 27 August 2021.


The objective of the activity was to monitor the company's management of logistics including materials handling, safe use of lifting equipment, work at height and maintenance.


Five non-conformities were identified, concerning:

  • Management and handling of unsecured lifting equipmen
  • Daily check of the offshore cranes
  • Evacuation routes
  • Scaffolding
  • Defective maintenance programme

One improvement point was also identified concerning roles and responsibilities for lifting equipment.

What happens now?

We have asked Equinor to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed and for their assessment of the improvement point observed.

The reply deadline is set at 31 January 2022.
