This document aims to provide practical considerations and examples of how an oil and gas company can identify and screen for labour rights risks in tier 1 (i.e. direct suppliers) of its supply chain. Although specifically focused on tier 1 application, companies may be able to adapt the
processes illustrated in the guidance document to identify where risks may be likely in tier 2 and further down their supply chains. The guidance aims to: • Provide support for company practitioners to make the case for implementing an effective risk identification process which is based on general industry practices. • Build supplier understanding of how operating companies might conduct a general labour rights risk identification process. • Seek to support and align with external initiatives working on supplier due diligence, such as the Human Rights Assessment Service, a global service for sharing human rights assessments of suppliers in the energy
sector. It covers: • How companies may address conducting risk identification and assessment. • General principles and examples of processes for risk-based screening methodologies. • Further sources of information to help companies research risk categories and background resources on human rights due diligence.
