Audit of employee participation

We have carried out an audit of employee participation at Kaefer Energy AS and Wood Group Norge (WGN). It focused in particular on the opportunities of the safety representatives and working environment committees (AMU) for performing their statutory duties.


The audit was part of a series on the same theme in six companies: two operators, two contractors in the SIP and M&M fields, and two drilling contractors. The purpose of also including operators was to shed light on their responsibilities as principal enterprises with regard to protective and HSE activities in the workplace.

The audit was conducted by the employers and employees providing written answers to various questions on the arrangements for employee participation. This was followed up by interviews at the PSA on 25 April 2017.

No regulatory non-conformities at the two companies were identified during the audit.

At Kaefer, however, improvement points were identified relating to:

  • Governing documents – description of routines for the safety representative function
  • Safety representative training
  • Involvement of the safety representatives in HSE-related matters

At Wood Group, an improvement point was identified concerning governing documents, in respect of the description of routines for the safety representatives' roles and responsibilities.

The companies have been given a deadline of 1 June 2017 to report on how the improvement points will be assessed.
