At FMI we are well aware of the challenges Covid-19 poses for the shipyard industry. This page is being updated with information and resources on an ongoing basis.
During May 2020 we developed an at-a-glance checklist to assist shipyards and interested parties identify some of the principal areas for attention to maintain business continuity through and beyond the Covid-19 crisis.
Feel free to download the complete version and use this list to check whether industry-specific issues have been considered, discussed and mitigated as necessary within your business.
A Covid-19 response team of specialists drawn from the global resources of Royal HaskoningDHV and FMI has also been formed during May 2020 to provide many of the skills needed to assist industry. Further information on this will be available through the website shortly.In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us should you wish to discuss the challenges you may be facing and how we may be able to help. Additional resources in the form of briefing papers and other tools will also be made available over the coming weeks.
The Society of Maritime Industries (SMI) in the UK has also produced COVID-19 Risk Management Advice for the Maritime Industry. The SMI summary document discusses UK Government guidance and industry best practice and can be found here
