Precautions at Nordkalk regarding risks related to the coronavirus

Hanne Mäkelä (info a nordkalk.com), 20 March 2020

Nordkalk monitors the international situation regarding the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) and continuously assesses the situation and its possible impact on our operations. At this moment, there is no impact on Nordkalk’s operations or ability to deliver.

Nordkalk continuously follows WHO’s and the local authorities’ recommendations regarding the virus and updates the instructions accordingly. Our own personnel’s and our partners’ safety is our first priority, and we do our best to secure customer deliveries also in this exceptional situation

As a precaution, Nordkalk is implementing a temporary practice of asking visitors (customers, contractors,  truck drivers etc.) about their health condition. So if you are about to visit, or planning a visit to a Nordkalk location, please be prepared to answer questions. If you have symptoms of a flu or cold, we will not grant you access to Nordkalk sites until further notice.

For the time being, we don’t allow any external visitors in our control rooms. Therefore, we also advice transport companies to primarily call in case they need assistance or have questions.

In order to limit the spread of the virus, we have enhanced hand hygiene and instructed our personnel to avoid any face to face contacts. All the employees who can, are asked to work from home. International and domestic travelling has been restricted to the very minimum.

We kindly ask for your understanding. These actions have been taken in order to contribute to limit further spread of the virus. Nordkalk apologizes for any inconvenience these actions may cause.
