This paper gives a presentation on a practical approach to systematic follow up of working environment in a major off-shore project. Emphasis is put on key activities, approaches made and future areas of improvement. A major Phillips Petroleum Company Norway (PPCoN) project in the North sea is used as a case presentation. A complex offshore platform needs to be designed to fit tor purpose. One of the roost important key issues is to design and construct for optimal conditions concerning operability and maintainability. This requires a focus on working environment issues from an early stage of design phase and through all the project phases. Establishment of working environment goals, philosophies and design basis requirements, mapping of key working environment issues and finally late phase construction review and inspection activities assist the strive to achieve the goals set.
