The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has carried out an audit of Equinor and their management of working environment risk at the Åsgard B facility. The audit was conducted from November 2021 to January 2022.

The objective of the audit was to verify that Equinor’s management of working environment risk prevents employees and temporary agency workers from being exposed to health hazards and the risk of sickness absence.

The audit comprised:
- Equinor's management of risks related to the psychosocial and organisational working environment, including capacity and competence, physical and chemical working environment and ergonomics
- How Equinor's working environment mapping systems are practised at Åsgard B
- How the company categorises and follows up findings following working-environment surveys, risk assessments and incidents at Åsgard B Result

The following regulatory non-conformities were identified:
- Analysis of the working environment
- Ergonomic factors
- Noise-related health risk
- Health risk from the chemical working environment
- Manning
- Work in excess of the permitted maximum number of working hours per year
- Management of the psychosocial working environment

What happens now?
We have asked Equinor to report to us by 15 October 2022 on how the non-conformities will be addressed.
