Safety precautions when travelling with ForSea
To ensure our passengers and employees the safest experience possible, some extraordinary precautions have been implemented within ForSea. This includes the following:
- Information on preventive hygienic action, in order to minimize the risks of spreading the virus, is posted in all passenger areas. That is, onboard the ferries, in the terminals, in port and in the offices. The information is based on the authority’s recommendations.
- Frequency of cleaning and disinfection have been increased with special focus on areas considered high risk (so called Hot-Spots).
- Increased focus on the amount of passengers onboard. For the time being, the number of passengers is way below the recommendation given by the authorities in relation to public gatherings.
- Increased possibilities to disinfect hands in passenger areas. Disinfectants are placed all over in areas for both passengers and employees. That is, onboard the ferries, in the terminals, in port and in the offices.
- Increased focus on internal routines in order to minimize the risk of spreading the COVID – 19 virus. This includes information on hygienic procedures, how to handle employees that are travelling abroad, requirements on external contractors etc.
