Covid-19

New Working Practises

It is now clear that “Normal” will not return for a long time, but in the meantime, we need to find a safe way of working. Operations have now commenced in Whitehaven Boatyard and soon work can continue at different sites.  We have carried out risk assessments relating to working on boats both in and out of the water, details are shown below.

The pace of work is much slower than before as deliveries are taking longer and of course only one person can be on a vessel at any time.

PLEASE BE PATIENT

OUR ADVICE IS FORGET 2020 BOATING SEASON, PREPARE FOR 2021

Our workshop & demonstration room are closed to visitors. However we can welcome one person at a time by appointment.

Before we can work on any project:

  • There must be no one else on board, preferably for at least 72 hours prior to work commencing.

  • We may use sanitising / disinfectant products at the client’s risk.

  • We must have contactless access to the marina / work area.

  • There must always be at least 2 metres between other people on site.

  • There must be unrestricted access to toilets and hand washing facilities where hot water is available.

 Sea trials are a cause for concern the following additional measures will be in place.

  • Only essential personnel may be on board.

  • Everyone must certify that they have not displayed symptoms of Covid-19.

  • Face masks and gloves must be worn.

  • Sanitising products must be available.

  • Time on board must be kept to a minimum.
