To MMA Offshore’s clients, suppliers and stakeholders,
RESPONSE TO COVID-19
As the global community continues to be affected by the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), I would like to provide you with an update on the proactive measures taken to date by the MMA Offshore Group (MMA).
MMA commenced our response to the COVID-19 outbreak in January 2020 and is continuing to monitor and appropriately adjust our response to this developing situation, with the health and safety of our employees, clients, suppliers and the community remaining our key priority.
MMA’s Executive Management Team meet daily to discuss MMA’s response, controls and to keep up to date with any further developments. Our HR and HSEQ teams conduct daily reviews of information and recommendations provided by the World Health Organization, governmental and regulatory authorities and medical practitioners.
To date, MMA has:
- Implemented a Communicable Disease Control Plan;
- Ceased all corporate travel and non-essential movement of people;
- Applied strict risk assessment and pre-joining measures for all vessel and project personnel;
- Earlier we had introduced social distancing measures for our office-based teams with functions segregated into two groups – with one group working from home, while the other group works in their designated office. It was and is intended for these groups to alternate each week.
- We have further introduced the ability for staff to work fulltime from home (where possible) and encouraged those that are able to do so. Our offices will remain open to those staff who wish to attend – provided they only do so on their rostered alternate weeks and adhere to our strict social distancing and segregation plans.
- Introduced a ban on personnel moving between offices, as well as discouraged and limited third parties from attending our office locations, project sites and vessels;
- Recommended that meetings with external parties be conducted through audio/videoconferencing and social distancing measures implemented for all internal meetings;
- Communicated and promoted good personal hygiene practices to all our employees, as outlined by the World Health Organization;
- Implemented daily temperature checks for all staff, project personnel and vessel crews; and
- Increased the level of daily office-based cleaning and sanitising.
In this ever-evolving climate, MMA are continuing to monitor the situation, with a view to always act in the best interests of our employees, our clients, our business and the broader community. We will continue to work together with all stakeholders of MMA to create the best situation possible for us all while we seek to manage the impact of COVID-19.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
