Due diligence assessment

Omega 365 works systematically to avoid human rights violations and labor issues in its own operations and supply chain. This is achieved through a management system that includes ethical guidelines, training, checklists, and reporting services, which are reviewed annually.

Omega 365 operates in multiple countries across several continents, with numerous employees, customers, suppliers, and partners. Consequently, there are potential risks related to human and environmental harm, ethical challenges, violations of fundamental human rights or local norms, cultures, and laws. These risks are recorded in the company's risk register, along with associated mitigating measures that are regularly evaluated. We ensure that our employees have access to health, safety, and environmental (HSE) courses, as well as procedures for following relevant HSE regulations and standards.

We ensure that no one works for us without having entered into a written contract that defines the obligations and responsibilities of all parties. Special HSE considerations, such as access to adequate training and proper protective equipment, are clarified in advance of all assignments. Before entering into agreements with new customers, suppliers, or partners, we conduct risk assessments that identify decent working conditions, sustainable solutions, or risks of other serious violations. This way, we ensure that we do not enter into agreements with companies that do not meet legal requirements.

In all countries where we operate, we identify relevant local laws, regulations, and norms that we comply with. We also strive to have a good relationship with the local community and contribute by supporting local teams and organizations. Additionally, we have a long-standing partnership with the Norwegian Refugee Council, which receives an annual gift from Omega 365.

All new employees receive training in Omega 365's ethical guidelines, which are also periodically communicated through various internal and external channels, such as What's up or Inside Omega. Ethical guidelines are also available in our personnel handbooks and on Internally, we have a low threshold for reporting deviations or unwanted incidents, and we have robust processes for following up on these. Where necessary, we have a whistleblowing option where the CEO receives the inquiry.
