Audits of employee participation

We have carried out audits of employee participation in Aker BP and Statoil (Drift Vest, Troll). They focused in particular on the opportunities of the safety representatives and working environment committees (AMU) for performing their statutory duties.


The audits were 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 the coordination of HSE activities in the workplace.

The audits were conducted by means of the employers and employees in the companies providing written answers to various questions on the arrangements for employee participation. This was followed up by interviews at the PSA on 13 and 14 June 2017.

At Aker BP, a regulatory non-conformity was identified concerning the working environment committee. Improvement points were also identified concerning governing documents, notification of criticisable conditions in the business, training of working environment committee members and safety representatives, and the time allocated to safety work.

We have asked Aker BP to report on how the non-conformity will be addressed by 21 August 2017.

At Statoil, no regulatory non-conformities were identified, but we found improvement points relating to better training, time allocated to safety work and sufficiently early involvement.

We have asked Statoil for feedback on how they assess the improvement points by 15 August 2017.
