Benchmark Genetics security measures to prevent the spread of Coronavirus

As you are aware, the current global health concerns connected with the coronavirus outbreak has led to several restrictions being implemented by the government in Iceland and most other countries worldwide.

As a result, we have taken the necessary actions to ensure the continuity of our operations by protecting our team to secure ova production at our facilities. Benchmark Genetics has introduced measures to all our daily operations to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. All companies within Benchmark Genetics have specific contingency plans to secure ova production and logistics.

At StofnFiskur production facilities, the following measures have been implemented:

  • Our production sites in Iceland have been completely closed to all visitors and non-employees since 11.03.2020
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection measures have been implemented and are conducted in-house by our own employees
  • Production staff will operate a shift pattern to further increase the separation of key teams and minimize any potential impact on supply.
  • We have decided to suspend common lunches during working hours and the employees must bring their own food from home. Meetings will take place on video conference systems and all employees are instructed to keep safe distances from colleagues during working operations.
  • Employees have been provided with hygiene information appropriate to minimize the spread of Coronavirus and we have secured enough protective equipment, disinfectants and other necessary equipment to limit the risk of infections within the facilities.
  • We have secured supplies of consumables important to production and packing to ensure continuous operation.
  • Our aim is to deliver all orders as planned, to the extent that this is possible. We will contact individual customers to clarify any flexibility regarding date and time of deliveries. The aim is to identify any opportunities to adjust logistic plans to mitigate challenges with air shipments, distribution across country borders, or other unpredictable issues.

We sincerely hope that all our customers avoid the major outbreaks of the disease and that business will soon return to normal!
