The audit was conducted in April 2022.


The statutory regulation of the supervision of temporary hires in the Working Environment Act was amended with effect from 1 July 2020. The PSA has the authority to supervise compliance with the terms for hiring personnel from temporary work agencies and the requirement for equal treatment when workers are hired. This extended supervisory responsibility also covers fulfilment by the company hiring workers of its duty to provide information to the temporary work agency.


The objective of the audit was to verify that, in hiring workers from temporary-work agencies, Seadrill fulfils the requirements of the Working Environment Act.


No non-conformities were identified during the audit.

One improvement point was identified concerning routines for ensuring the legality of hiring.

What happens next?

We have asked Seadrill to provide us with their assessment of the improvement points observed by 19 April 2022.
