Protecting crew, ships, businesses and operations from Covid-19
Restart Your Business With BVS

As marine operations resume, ship owners and ports need to address a range of health, safety and hygiene risks to protect employees, passengers and clients. Owners and operators must show that crucial protective measures have been implemented onboard and onshore, and prove compliance with local, national and international guidelines.

BV Solutions M&O’s consultancy offer allows ship owners to address short- and long-term risks and ensure that appropriate measures are in place. Our experts help clients define the scope of necessary services, assess existing measures and verify the implementation of protective protocols. Ships then undergo an audit to determine compliance, and following independent verification, owners receive a BV SafeGuard Label. 

Key Benefits

  • Receive key regulatory advice for the implementation of new safety, health and hygiene measures
  • Undergo a risk assessment to develop ship-specific implementation plans and necessary documentation
  • Gain ongoing support and reviews for testing, measuring, monitoring and reporting
  • Undergo an independent audit performed by surveyors with maritime-specific health and safety expertise
  • Showcase BV SafeGuard label to improve passenger and guest confidence

Define work scope for ship protection

BV Solutions M&O offers a range of services to help ship owners and operators determine the protective measures they need to implement. Our experts offer gap analysis, risk assessments, checklist assistance, design analysis and response plan development, and provide planning support for the short-, medium- and long-term.

Verify onboard implementation

BV Solutions M&O provides a complete review of onboard health, safety and hygiene protocols. Our on-site experts review implemented measures, observing progress and offering recommendations to support ship owners and operators. Once all protective measures are successfully implemented, BV Solutions M&O can help clients perform ISM or SMS audits before ships resume operations.

Receive BV SafeGuard label

Following independent verification from a qualified auditor, BV Solutions M&O can support their clients to obtain the Safeguard label to be displayed on their vessel and online. With a label from a recognized classification society, owners can assure passengers and personnel that their vessel meets the most up-to-date standards for health, hygiene and safety.

Support from experienced consultants

Our team of expert consultants includes marine surveyors, industrial hygienists, seafarers, ISM experts, incident investigators, auditors and more. They are supported by BV Solutions M&O’s Centre of Excellence, which offers a range of services, including project management, regulatory advice, desktop reviews and mapping of onboard management plans.
