BIMCO publishes COVID-19 guidelines for office workspaces

Overview

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak started as a locally circulating infection associated with Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market but has since developed into the current pandemic. To assist the shoreside of the maritime industry in taking appropriate protective measures at office workplaces, BIMCO is issuing guidelines intended to help shipping companies avoid spreading of the disease at offices and office buildings.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak started as a locally circulating infection associated with Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market but has since developed into the current pandemic. To assist the shoreside of the maritime industry in taking appropriate protective measures at office workplaces, BIMCO is issuing guidelines intended to help shipping companies avoid spreading of the disease at offices and office buildings.

In addition, BIMCO has produced posters that can be easily printed and used at offices to help guide members of staff and visitors.

We all have a shared responsibility in containing this outbreak and promoting a sense of awareness amongst ourselves and others. We hope that these guidelines will spread the message that basic human acts can go a long way in protecting each other as well as containing the spread of this disease.

BIMCO therefore encourages all to share these guidelines throughout the industry.
