From 16 to 18 September 2014, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway carried out an audit of work by OSM Offshore (OSM) to identify and follow up groups at particular risk and emergency preparedness on board the Haven jack-up accommodation vessel.
The PSA says that groups at particular risk have been a key priority since 2007.
The object of the initiative was for the PSA to help reduce the risk of injury and sickness for groups at particular risk by monitoring that the companies develop a comprehensive picture of the risk of sickness and injury for groups of employees, and that new knowledge is used proactively in a risk-based approach in which efforts are focused on groups where the needs and impacts are largest.
The object of the activity was to verify that OSM has established a functioning control system. According to the PSA, the control system must ensure that risk factors for different groups of employees are identified, mapped and followed up so that occupational health and safety are properly provided for. In addition, the object was to verify vessel’s emergency preparedness organisation, equipment and systems that provide preparedness functionality.
The PSA says the audit identified two non-conformities relating to OHAS competence and cooperation between the different company health services. Five improvement points were also identified.
Haven received an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in July 2011. In August 2011, ConocoPhillips received consent from Petroleum Safety Authority Norway to use jack-up rig Haven on Ekofisk field.
The owner of the jack-up rig is Master Marine AS, the charterer is ConocoPhillips and the manager is OSM Offshore AS.
