The objective of the audit was to follow up Equinor’s handling of an order issued on 25 January 2021 subsequent to an audit of materials handling, cranes and lifting in October 2020.
In addition, we wanted to monitor how Equinor has secured learning and experience sharing from incidents across the onshore facilities.
