Updates from RINA

Biosafety Trust Certification

An innovative certification scheme for the prevention and control of the spread of infections.RINA has developed Biosafety Trust Certification, the first certification framework for management systems designed to prevent and mitigate the spread of infections in order to protect people from the threat of biological agents.
The new certification promotes a set of best practices to minimise the risk of spreading epidemics in public and private places of social gathering, such as means of transport, entertainment venues (restaurants, theatres, museums, gyms and swimming pools) , accommodation facilities (hotels, cruise ships, convention centres), nursing and rest homes.

Measuring COVID-19 impact through Direct Worker Reporting

Remote monitoring in the context of the coronavirus
The spread of Covid-19 has disrupted life as we know it worldwide. This virus has also significantly disrupted global supply chains. Given this situation, RINA and &Wider wish to offer the means to:
– offer critical insights into worker wellbeing in workplaces which continue production, albeit under new pressures and circumstances;- maintain oversight of labour practices along global supply chains while traditional social audits cannot take place;- monitor the impact and effectiveness of any measure taken to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, whether on own workforce or workers along the supply chain;- offer insights into working conditions and productivity for RINA clients’ own workforces, that are now under obligation to work from home.
