The audit was carried out with interviews in Saipem's offices on land, with the company health service Mediteam, and through verifications on Scarabeo 5.
The audit focused on:
Implementation and follow-up of working environment surveys.
Follow-up of work-related illness and reduced work capacity.
Follow-up of work loads and restitution.
Employee participation / the safety delegate service.
Background for the audit
Following up the working environment is an important part of the preventive HSE work, and therefore high on the PSA's list of priorities. Saipem's follow-up of working environment issues has been studied earlier on, in connection with the application for an (AoC) for Scarabeo 5. Hence the present audit can also be considered a follow-up of this.
Purpose of the audit
The goal of the audit has been to gain an overall understanding of Saipem's management system for systematic follow-up of the working environment in all phases/parts of the management loop. Another goal has been to gain an overall understanding of working environment challenges and status of the working environment on Scarabeo 5, as a basis for the PSA's further follow-up of the company.
Result of the audit
The audit showed that Saipem's management of the working environment contains positive elements in all parts of the management loop.
Over the last few years Saipem has implemented several extensive improvement measures which are significant for the working environment on Scarabeo 5, such as a new drillers cabin, new shakers, improved vision in the deck crane, noise reduction in the engine control room and elsewhere, a new DP system and a new laundry.
The audit uncovered one non-conformity with regard to the working environment. This non-conformity concerns the management of chemicals. A few areas with room for improvement were also identified.
