BW Offshore encourages open discussions about responsible conduct and if any relevant party discovers any unethical or illegal practice or finds themselves in an ethical dilemma, they are obliged to seek advice.
It is every BW Offshore Representative’s responsibility to conduct their activities in accordance with the BW Offshore Purpose & Principles and with good, ethical judgment consistent with the requirements of our Code and Guidelines however, they are not alone in this effort and are encouraged to raise questions, dilemmas, concerns or any suspected instances of non-compliance to the Head of Corporate Integrity.
BW Offshore has established an externally available grievance mechanism (the BW Offshore Speak Up Channel) allowing reporting of concerns about breaches of laws, regulations or BW Offshore’s policies and procedures. The Speak Up Channel enables reporting via the web or by telephone, with local access numbers provided for most countries in the world. Users can speak to operators in 58 languages, including the official languages of all the countries in which BW Offshore operates. Reports can be made anonymously. Alternately, BW Offshore can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
BW Offshore does not tolerate retaliation against any personnel for raising any 'good faith' concern, question, grievance or complaint. All reports are treated confidentially and investigated, if necessary, promptly, thoroughly and fairly. Breaches of BW Offshore’s Code or relevant statutory provisions may result in disciplinary action, or dismissal with or without notice, and may also be reported to the relevant authorities. BW Offshore is committed to making necessary corrections and taking remedial action to prevent recurrence, should improper practice occur.
Anyone wishing to enquire about BW Offshore's human rights and decent working condition practices under the Norwegian Transparency Act may do so by submitting a question through BW Offshore's Speak Up Channel, using the 'Ask a Question' function.
