MB92 gradually restarts activity under new safety measures

MB92  Group  has announced  that  it  has  restarted  activity  at  both  of  its facilities in Barcelona and La Ciotat. 

Operations,  which  resumed  on  14th   April,  are  to  be  escalated  gradually  and  involve  extremely  strict  procedures  to  protect  all  people  entering  and  operating  in  the  shipyard. 

These will control all working procedures, as well as the flow and movement throughout the various areas within the sites.

Pepe  García-Aubert, CEO and president of MB92 Group,  said, “The  health  and  safety  of  our  employees, clients, suppliers and local community has always been our absolute priority. When we made the difficult decision to suspend activity at our facilities on 16th March, we did so pre-emptively as there was a lack of concrete containment measures established by international organisations or regional and national governments at that time.

“Given the significant flow of people into and out of our facilities and the rising number of cases in Europe, the MB92 Group was as prudent as possible to protect everyone’s health, especially when considering the reduced availability of adequate personal protection at that time.”

With signs of improvement in both Spain and France and clear guidelines issued by relevant health  authorities,  MB92  has  sourced  all  of  the  necessary  personal  protective  equipment  through official channels to begin working again.

In addition to this protective equipment, MB92 has also put specific organisational measures in place to reduce contact between everyone operating in the facilities. Therefore, staff who can work from home continue to do so and works on board are orchestrated in such a way as to reduce contact to a bare minimum while always respecting social distancing measures.

García-Aubert  added,  “We  have  always  believed  that  our  ability  to  adapt  to  difficult situations and find solutions for our clients was one of the keys to our success. Today it is thanks to this quality that we will overcome this crisis and be stronger as a result.”
