The ferry line has become the first shipping company in the world to have its capability to manage and prevent infection risks verified in line with the My Care methodology.
With My Care, DNV GL assesses companies' risk management systems, i.e., whether hospital quality standards and systems are applied, in the case of Viking Line - on-board seven vessels and throughout operations across six terminals.
"The safety of our passengers and employees is always Viking Line's top priority, and that is also the case during this pandemic. Everyone must be able to travel safely with us. We have long carried out infection risk preventive work and have now chosen to be assessed by a third party to quality-assure our work in conjunction with COVID-19. Our employees' considerable efforts are impressive. We have achieved this thanks to their skills and engagement," Jan Hanses, President and CEO, Viking Line, underlined.
Luca Crisciotti, CEO, DNV GL Business Assurance, added, "[…] The application of My Care creates trust since the focus is to prevent infectious diseases. It also demonstrates Viking Line's strong engagement in further developing its […] Health, Security & Environment […] processes. A third-party assessment provides assurance that the right measures have been taken to protect people, work transparently and increase the trust of passengers and other stakeholders."
