Operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, update 28 January 2022

As a responsible company, we are taking all steps within our possibilities to help stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect our employees and business partners.

We continue to employ stringent health and safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and its variants to ensure business continuity

This is a periodic update of our COVID-19 News. Read our previous publication here.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic we have successfully managed to ensure a safe work environment for our employees. This represents a basis for guaranteeing business continuity, and remains our top priority in 2022.

The new Omicron variant confronts all of us with a new wave of COVID-19 infections. In response, we are continuing to learn from our experience so far and take all steps reasonably possible to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and its variants. We see the challenges caused by this even more contagious variant and have increased our efforts to protect our employees and business partners while proceeding with our measures to maintain business continuity. We are doing this by following, and where necessary exceeding, the government guidelines of each country and region in which we operate. Work scenarios are continuously re-evaluated for all our locations on an individual basis, including regular risk assessments by our Location Leadership Teams and our Health, Safety, Environment & Quality and Human Resources organisations. Since January this year we have also increased best-practice sharing among our locations to learn from and support each other even better. At the same time, we continue to actively encourage our employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

With these actions we are also supporting our customers and business partners to minimise their employees’ exposure to potential safety or health risks. At the same time, we expect our partners to comply with COVID-19-related legal requirements and regulations issued by governments at national and regional level.

Staying in contact

We thank you for your understanding that for practical reasons it is not possible for us to answer individual customer surveys regarding which safety measures we currently have in place for all of our sites.

We keep our regional websites updated with the current safety regulations we have in place, as business partners who need to access our sites also need to comply with these measures. Thank you for checking this information and pre-aligning with your direct contact at Borealis before you enter one of our locations.

We will continue to provide regular updates and information by way of our established channels. In case of questions, do not hesitate to reach out to your direct contact at Borealis, or via these contact forms.
