NMCS - Presently not affected by the Corona virus
NMCS has so far not been affected by the COVID-19 virus outbreak at our branches in Norway. In order to reduce risk and secure our execution of services, we have initiated a range of measures and precautions. As an important party in order to secure and maintain the flow of goods into the country, NMCS has initiated new and more stringent measures in order to limit/prevent infection.
We have implemented a range of new hygiene measures in the company and have a great focus on this among our employees. In addition, all physical meetings, gatherings, seminars and conferences etc. have been cancelled. Travelling in connection with surveys shall primarily be performed by using the company’s service cars – we try to avoid public transportation. Employees that have been on vacation or come from areas with high risk must work from home for a period of 14 days.
On all plants and terminals where we are represented, we are subject to the local HMS regulations. Our inspectors have been instructed to avoid entering into vessel’s accomodation, avoid close contact with the vessel’s crew and to maintain a practice where documents etc. shall, as far as possible, be exchanged in open air.
The administration of NMCS is following the development continously and adapt to the situation in accordance with requirements given by the authorities.
