The audit was conducted from 5 to 8 September 2022.


The objective of the audit was to verify that Equinor's management of working environment risk and employee participation at Hammerfest LNG complied with the regulatory requirements.


Five non-conformities were identified, relating to:

  • Analysis of the working environment
  • Non-conformity handling
  • Follow-up of measures
  • Psychosocial factors
  • Arrangements for employee participation

One factor was also observed that we have chosen to categorize as an improvement point. This concerned:

  • Personal protective equipment

What happens now?

We have asked Equinor to report to us by 31 January 2023 on how the non-conformities will be addressed, and to give us their assessment of the improvement point observed.
