Strict protocol to prevent corona-contamination

Now the coronavirus has also reached the Netherlands, it’s time for extra awareness. Therefor all Vetipak factories have taken precautionary measures. In this blog we update you on our protocol.


Good to be aware: none of our employees shows symptoms which are related to the coronavirus. Also none of them has been in a so called high risk area.


Strict policy as standard

The Vetipak-policy has always been trying to prevent contamination as the standard way of working. All visitors have to sign in and declare they are healthy as standard during entrance check-in. Persons that show symptoms of influenza will be denied access to the factory as a standard.


Extra measures

Additionally we have taken extra measures to limit the risk of contamination at or via Vetipak:


  • We are extra aware to following our (strict) hygiene protocol.
  • At all Vetipak entrances we have placed an extra instruction poster explaining hygiene rules.
  • All employees have received clear instructions about what to do when they show symptoms realted to the coronavirus.
  • We follow the guidelines of the RIVM (Dutch Institute of Health and Environment) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (related to foreign travel plans)
  • A daily team-meeting will take place to discuss possible changes around the coronavirus and if needed take the required measures.


In short: we are very aware. After all it concerns our well-being and also continuity of business.
