The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Equinor’s management of lifting operations and system for safe materials handling in the company. The audit was conducted from 7 to 11 June 2021.
The objective was to monitor the division of responsibilities within Equinor and how the company ensures that the management system for materials handling, lifting operations and lifting equipment complies with our regulatory requirements. The audit covered both operational and technical matters, and we looked at both implementation and compliance with the requirements across Equinor's operating units, facilities and projects.
During the audit, one non-conformity was identified, concerning regulatory compliance.
No improvement points were identified.
What happens now?
We have asked Equinor to report on how the non-conformity will be addressed.
The reply deadline for this is set at 3 December 2021.
