Contractor compliance is a critical element of Petroplan’s contractor management services. Our highly experienced regional onboarding teams check each contractor’s business set up to verify it complies with local legislative requirements. We also ensure that they have all the right insurances in place. This means our contractors arrive for their assignment fully compliant and ready to hit the ground running. And we keep them compliant – our onboarding team tracks the expiry of contractor insurances and training; requesting new certificates when they are nearing expiry.
Petroplan’s ISO accredited quality management system is based on oil and gas industry accepted “plan – do – review – improve” methodology. In the interests of continuous improvement, we are in the process of updating the system to meet new ISO standards that will be mandatory in 2018. Additionally, our membership of APSCo commits the company to a global code of good practice.
Petroplan has an HSEQ Manager who previously worked in the field for oil and gas clients in a range of challenging locations, including Algeria. The HSE processes he has designed for Petroplan therefore comply with OHSAS standards and are tailored to comply with local legislation and regional conditions in each territory.
One of our core strengths is fast and accurate payrolling in a range of locations around the world. Our teams on the ground are familiar with local legislation and speak the local language; often liaising with the local authority on behalf of our contractors where payrolling issues need to be promptly resolved.
We ensure contractor compliance with our clients’ ethical standards by supplying the contractor with the client’s Code of Conduct. We also supply them with Petroplan’s Guide to Business Conduct to assist them in making informed and ethical decisions. This includes guidance around Anti Bribery and Corruption, Human Rights and Labour Policy and Workplace Diversity.
Petroplan has in-house Legal Counsel so that we can ensure all contractor documentation meets legal requirements. For our own compliance we have formal data protection procedures in place and regularly conduct both external and internal quality audits of our company processes.
