Ensuring Regulatory Compliance with NORSOK Standard Z-015
Safety is deeply ingrained in every task, project and workplace in the offshore industry. Working in tough and potentially hazardous conditions demands protocols and safety measures to be in place. In the fast-paced environment, such as on rigs, regulatory requirements are incorporated at every level of the operation which also includes temporary equipment.
Temporary equipment falls under the NORSOK standard Z-015.
