The audit was conducted between 3 January and 2 February 2023.


The objective of the audit was to verify that OKEA’s management and follow-up of materials handling and maintenance management, including work at height, fulfilled the company’s and the authorities’ requirements.


We identified three non-conformities during the audit. These concerned:

  • Specially designed lifting appliances (SDLAs)
  • Follow-up of contractors’ cranes and lifting
  • Maintenance programme

We also identified four improvement points. These concerned:

  • Materials handling plan
  • Work at height
  • Protective device at hose stations
  • Prioritisation of maintenance

What happens next?

We have asked OKEA to report to us by 31 March 2023 on how the non-conformities will be addressed, and for their assessment of the improvement points identified.
