Notice of orderThe audit identified nine regulatory non-conformities linked to oversight and control of working environment risk; prioritization, implementation and follow-up of measures; noise exposure harmful to hearing; and follow-up of the working environment for contractors.The other non-conformities included system for training and competence, evacuation routes, float-free function for forward rafts, lighting in lifeboats, and personal protective equipment (MOB suits).PSA also said that the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority identified a number of non-conformities and remarks concerning the helideck. The findings mainly related to obstacle conditions, the view from the helideck control station to the helideck, and training of the helideck crew.Based on the observations during the audit, Ocean Rig was given a notice of order. According to the notification, Ocean Rig is ordered to review the company’s management system for the working environment and emergency preparedness and associated work processes, which is intended to safeguard competence, surveys, risk assessments, rectification of faults and deficiencies, and improvements.The work should include an analysis of why defects related to management of the working environment and emergency preparedness were not identified and corrected.A time-delimited schedule for complying with the order shall be sent to the PSA by April 12, 2019. The schedule should describe how this work would be performed and followed up and when the order would be complied with.The PSA added that it must be notified when the order is carried out.last_img read more

Balanced Clippers put seven in double figures, stop struggling Nets

first_img“I think a lot of people slept on us when we got all these players but I think we’re getting better and better,” he said.Danilo Gallinari had 16 points and reserve Montrezl Harrell collected 15 points on 6-for-6 shooting. The Clippers made 19 of their first 26 shots and won for the 12th time in 17 games.D’Angelo Russell and Joe Harris each scored 16 for the Nets, who dropped their sixth straight.“We couldn’t stop them. We never found a solution to stopping them,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “They got downhill on us. We knew we had to keep them out of the paint and we never did. That was the story of the game. We couldn’t stop them.”The Clippers are still adjusting to a different team after acquiring new starters Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley from the Pistons, and Coach Doc Rivers said the Clippers were being careful not to call too many plays, since the new players hadn’t had enough time to learn them.

(AP Photo/Kathy Willens)ExpandNEW YORK — If this is what the Clippers can do by keeping it simple, imagine the possibilities once they know their plays.Lou Williams scored 20 points, DeAndre Jordan had 16 points and 17 rebounds, and they got plenty of help from a balanced lineup in a 114-101 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night.Seven Clippers scored in double figures and the team shot 56.5 percent from the field in its fourth win in five games, bouncing back nicely from a loss in Philadelphia.Austin Rivers, who had 17 points, said even he was surprised with how easy the Clippers made it look, since they’ve had to slash their playbook in the aftermath of trading Blake Griffin to Detroit. Whatever they did Monday worked just fine.“Like I told them after the game, there will be a night when only two guys get big numbers and we win, and there’ll be nights where five, six, seven, eight guys will score in double figures and we win,” Doc Rivers said. “Doesn’t matter, as long as we win.”The Clippers were 15 of 21 in the first quarter, building a 34-22 lead. They kept it up in the second, pushing the lead to 45-28 on consecutive layups by Harrell, who made all four shots in seven first-half minutes. The Clippers led 66-51 at the break.They had 90 points after three quarters and when the Nets cut it to nine in the fourth, the Clippers scored six straight to take a comfortable lead again.TIP-INSClippers: Point guard Milos Teodosic returned after missing two games with a sore right foot and had seven points and four assists. … The Clippers won for just the second time in six games at Barclays Center.Nets: Forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right groin strain) and guard Caris LeVert (right knee sprain) will remain out through the All-Star break. … Guard Milton Doyle, who has played in six games for the Nets, was voted the NBA G League Player of the Week for last week’s games.FALLING TOO FARThe Nets fell behind by 28 points on Saturday in a loss to New Orleans, wiping that out before falling in two overtimes. They played from behind nearly all the way in this one, mostly by double digits.“It’s definitely difficult right now. Nobody likes to lose, especially in the fashion we have been lately,” Joe Harris said. “It seems like we just keep digging ourselves holes and you can’t beat teams in the NBA when you’re trying to overcome 20-point deficits. It takes too much energy to crawl your way back in. It’s just getting repetitive at this point.”UP NEXTClippers: Visit Boston on Wednesday.Nets: Host Indiana on Wednesday.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
