DNV GL has verified that Color Line’s infection prevention processes and measures are sufficient to keep people safe and in line with local regulations; DNV GL's My Care readiness assessment covers Color Line’s management systems, the company's six passenger and cargo vessels operating between Norway and Denmark, Germany and Sweden, and associated terminals.

Color Line is the first company in Norway to be verified by DNV GL for systems related to handling infection risk, demonstrating that Color Line's ships and terminals are safe with adequate systems in place for both passengers and employees.

The My Care methodology is derived from DNV GL’s infection risk management approach used by hospitals to ensure patient safety. It combines DNV GL’s healthcare standards with best practices in risk management, HSE management systems and maturity safety rating standards.  The holistic approach enables organisational readiness to deal with infectious diseases today and can drive lasting changes that build long term business resilience.

Lin Jacobsen Hammer, Sustainability and Training Manager Norway, DNVGL - Business Assurance said: “Congratulations to Color Line on achieving the My Care – Infection Prevention Ready trust mark for its vessels. Actively building trust in its infection prevention efforts demonstrates Color Line’s strong commitment to ensuring adequate and compliant infection risk management measures. Verification by a third party provides assurance that the right measures are in place to keep people safe, providing transparency and enhancing the trust of passengers and other stakeholders.”
