REDS Group were commissioned by Trinity House to carry out a COVID-19 decontamination programme on their three support vessels at every 3-week crew change. These were carried out in Swansea, Harwich and Lowestoft.
Green zone outside and shoreside of the corridor, the decontamination corridor and open decks of the vessel becoming the orange zone and inside the accommodation was designated the red zone.
The HazMat team follow an established methodology, which involves removing loose waste, cleaning with a hazardous materials vacuum, wiping with Dasic Aerokleen ACS and, finally, misting all surfaces.
The REDS team decontaminated each other before removing their PPE, which is then treated as waste and double bagged with all other waste before being placed into sealed drums for removal to a registered waste facility.
