The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway is divided into six disciplines:
- Drilling and well technology
- Process integrity
- Structural integrity
- Logistics and emergency preparedness
- Occupational health and safety
- HSE management
Each area is headed by a discipline leader who is responsible for quality, personnel, expertise development and resource management.
Supervision is organised in six main groups.
Each of these has a supervision coordinator with product responsibility and formal power of decisions.
The players also have their own contacts.
