Oil Spill Response Limited are taking the threat of the novel coronavirus outbreak emanating from Wuhan, China seriously. We are taking steps to minimise the risk of infection to our personnel, contractors, Members and other stakeholders. We are also seeking to maintain our ability to respond to spill incidents and deliver preparedness work.
To these ends we are:
- Reducing and/or stopping travel to centres of infection
- Enforcing a 14 day quarantine period for staff and base visitors between their last time in an infected region and access to our bases
- Assuring ourselves of the resilience of key contractors
- Providing employees with appropriate infection prevention advice and equipment such as hand gel, face masks and thermometers
We are monitoring the situation closely and taking daily advice from our global health advisors, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
