The audit was conducted in June 2022.


The statutory regulation of the supervision of temporary hires in the Working Environment Act was amended with effect from 1 July 2020. The PSA thereby gained the authority to investigate fulfilment of the conditions of hire from temporary-work agencies and the requirement for equal treatment when hiring workers. The user undertaking’s obligation to provide information to the temporary-work agency is also comprised by this extended supervisory responsibility.


The objective of the audit was to verify whether Wood's hiring of employees from temporary-work agencies complies with the Working Environment Act requirements.


One non-conformity was identified linked to routines for ensuring the legality of temporary hires.

What happens next?

We have asked Wood to report on how the non-conformity will be addressed. The deadline for reply is set at 16 September 2022.
