New COVID guidance for shipyards

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented the maritime industry with many challenges. Ships and workboats are needed in order to keep the UK's imports and exports flowing.

To provide a consistent model of best practice to enable work to continue in this unique environment, the Society of Maritime Industries (SMI) convened an online shipyard health and safety forum.  This brought together thirteen shipyards, workboat builders and a superyacht yard to develop appropriate industry guidance.

Tim Currass, SMI Programme Director said “The UK’s Maritime Industry is critical in keeping our country functioning.  It must do so safely however, to protect our employees and to protect our health service and save lives.  The guidance we have produced has been welcomed by the industry as it monitors best practice across the industry.  We will continue to evolve the guidance as the Coronavirus situation develops.”

The guidance is available to download at https://www.maritimeindustries.org/Information-on-Covid-19
