Audit of Equinor – Hammerfest LNG

From 14 to 16 May 2018, we carried out an audit of the follow-up of alarm load and human factors in the control room at Hammerfest LNG.

The purpose of the audit was to investigate whether the alarm systems at Hammerfest LNG gave the operators the necessary support in handling the processing facility during normal operations, during interruptions and in the event of incidents, measured against the relevant company and statutory requirements.

In addition, Equinor’s mapping and follow-up of human factors and physical working environment conditions in the control room were assessed. The audit also included an assessment of the competency assurance, training and instruction of the operators.

No non-conformities were identified.

Improvement points were identified in connection with:

  • Mapping of psychosocial factors and human factors in the main control room
  • Assessment of the need for analyses in ergonomics and human factors

Equinor has been given a deadline of 13 August 2018 to report on how the improvement points will be addressed.
