NPD announces heightened focus on supervision of working hours

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has sent a letter to the players on the Norwegian shelf asking the companies to explain their control procedures aimed at employees' working hours.


In the letter, the operators are asked to explain what their supervisor responsibility vis-à-vis contractor employees entails in this area.

The NPD also wants to know to what extent the procedures are designed to reveal violations of the working hours and rest rules.

The companies are being asked to send their reports to the NPD by 30 September. Based on the material received, the NPD will consider further follow-up vis-à-vis the respective companies.

At the same time, it is emphasized that each individual company, in cooperation with its employees, must develop the necessary systems and procedures to ensure compliance with the regulatory requirements.
