CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION / Preventive Measures

Frigo-Trans implements the latest regulations of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the Federal Ministry of Labour to protect against possible infection with the coronavirus. Workplaces are equipped with the so-called spit shields and medical masks are available. The already designated precautionary and behavioural measures at the workplace are still valid. An obligation to carry out a regular Corona test of all employees in the companies, which is possibly envisaged by the Federal Ministry of Labour, is still pending. However, Frigo-Trans offers its employees the opportunity to be tested free of charge in the company before and after the Easter holidays so that everyone can feel as safe as possible.

We are sure that these measures will help us to reduce the risk of a possible infection due to the coronavirus to a minimum.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our employees for their engagement and for adhering to the measures taken with the necessary consistency and thus providing the management with their best possible support.

CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION / Preventive Measures

Last weekend, the individual federal states of Germany again tightened the regulations for protection against the accelerated spread and thus the risk of infection with the corona virus. The so-called “ban on contact” is now decisive, meaning that in public, only a maximum of two people may have direct contact.

Frigo-Trans will also implement this official contact restriction within the company as far as possible. In a first measure, extended distances at the workplaces have already been implemented (e.g. in the dispatch department).

The following regulations apply with immediate effect, too:

  • the meanwhile well-known hygiene regulations must be strictly adhered to (regular hand washing/disinfecting, no shaking hands, etc.)
  • Keep distance! All employees have to keep a distance of 2 m at least while having direct contact with each other
  • Gatherings in groups are not permitted. Like in the public, only a 1:1 contact is allowed (e.g. in social rooms, corridors, smoking areas, etc.)
  • In case of contact with colleagues from other departments, it is mandatory to wear the provided mouth/nose protection masks.
  • Each employee must check whether the required minimum distance at the workplace to the next colleague is sufficient. If you have any concerns, please inform the Management directly so that the situation can be checked in detail.

We are sure that these measures will help us to reduce the risk of a possible infection due to the coronavirus to a minimum.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our employees for their engagement and for adhering to the measures taken with the necessary consistency and thus providing the management with their best possible support.
