From 16 to 31 May 2018, we carried out an audit of Seadrill’s (formerly North Atlantic Drilling) management of emergency preparedness and the working environment, including arrangements for employee participation, on the West Elara mobile drilling facility.
The objective of the audit was to verify that the company’s systems for management of the working environment and emergency preparedness, as well as arrangements for employee participation on West Elara, comply with the regulations.
Within the domain of emergency preparedness, a non-conformity concerning the maintenance of emergency preparedness equipment and an improvement point relating to analyses and systems for training the emergency preparedness organisation were identified.
Within the working environment domain, non-conformities linked to mapping and risk assessment of the working environment and defective evaluation and implementation of measures were identified. We also identified non-conformities within the safety service and the joint on-site working environment committee. Improvement points were also identified in respect of the choice and maintenance of respirators.
We have asked Seadrill to report to us on how the non-conformities will be addressed by 14 September 2018. We have also asked for their assessment of the improvement points we observed.
