HOUSTON – Prime Tanker Management has selected ABSG Consulting Inc. to implement the Restart Risk Model to help resume operations safely at the company’s facility in Athens, Greece, and mitigate COVID-19 risk.
ABS Consulting will work with Prime’s Incident Management Team virtually to assess the inherent risk of each site area, select recommended controls, and develop enterprise-level policy and training solutions.
“We look forward to working with Prime as they develop a plan to restart operations with enhanced working practices that address the ‘new normal’ environment surrounding the pandemic,” said Ryan Moody, president and CEO at ABS Group. “This risk-based framework was created with our vast global network in mind, supporting business leaders as they act quickly to bring employees back to work safely.”
The Restart Risk Model builds on authoritative guidance from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and the European Commission COVID-19 Guidance for the Workplace, with risk-based protective measures that expand on the regulations guiding communities’ daily health considerations.
