The objective of the audit was to review and assess management’s administration of emergency preparedness on the Brage facility. We verified the processes that Wintershall has established to ensure that assumptions, limitations and recommendations in the emergency preparedness analysis are catered for, and that these have been communicated to the emergency preparedness organisation. We also wanted to monitor that a system for continuous improvement has been implemented and that collaboration has been provided for.


Non-conformities were identified relating to:

  • Obstacles in evacuation routes
  • Signage and marking of evacuation routes

In addition, improvement points were identified relating to:

  • Competence
  • Training and drills
  • Marking of rescue equipment
  • MOB boat training

What happens now?

Wintershall has been given a deadline of 26 April 2019 to report on how the non-conformities and improvement points will be addressed.
