The audit was conducted from 24 May to 9 June 2023.


The objective of the audit was to verify that AKOFS’s and Archer’s management of the working environment complied with the regulatory requirements, and to follow up non-conformities from a previous working environment audit from the AoC process in 2020.


We identified six non-conformities on the part of AKOFS, concerning:

  • analysis of the working environment
  • follow-up of chemical health hazards
  • follow-up of noise
  • follow-up of hand/arm vibration
  • personal protective equipment
  • routines for analysing alarm load

We also identified one improvement point in respect of AKOFS, concerning:

  • HSE training of managerial personnel

We also identified two improvement points in respect of Archer, concerning:

  • HSE training of managerial personnel
  • analysis of the psychosocial working environment

What happens next?

We have asked Archer and AKOFS Offshore to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed, and for their assessment of the improvement points identified. The reply deadline for Archer is set at 19 September 2023, while AKOFS’s is set at 18 October 2023.
