Practical actions for businesses to take based on 5 main steps.
AMI follows government guides that are relevant to our workplace as listed below. Further guidance will be published as more businesses are able to reopen.
A. Carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment
Before restarting work you should ensure the safety of the workplace by:
- carrying out a risk assessment in line with the HSE guidance
- consulting with our workers
- sharing the results of the risk assessment with our workforce and on our website.
B. Develop cleaning, handwashing, and hygiene procedures
We have increased the frequency of handwashing and surface cleaning by:
- encouraging people to follow the guidance on handwashing and hygiene
- providing hand sanitiser around the workplace, in addition to washrooms
- frequently cleaning and disinfecting objects and surfaces that are touched regularly
- enhancing cleaning for busy areas
- setting clear use and cleaning guidance for toilets
- providing hand drying facilities – either paper towels or electrical dryers
C. Help people to work from home
We take all reasonable steps to help people work from home by:
- discussing home working arrangements
- ensuring our team have the right equipment, for example, remote access to work systems
- including our team in all necessary communications
- looking after our teams physical and mental wellbeing
D. Maintain 2m social distancing, where possible
Where possible, you/we maintain at least 1m distance (preferably 2m) between people by:
- putting up signs to remind workers and visitors of social distancing guidance
- avoiding sharing workstations
- using floor tape or paint to mark areas to help people keep to a 2m distance
- arranging one-way traffic through the workplace if possible
- switching to seeing visitors by appointment only if possible
E. Where people cannot be 2m apart, manage transmission risk
Where it’s not possible for people to be 2m apart, we do everything practical to manage the transmission risk by:
- considering whether an activity needs to continue for the business to operate
- keeping the activity time involved as short as possible
- using screens or barriers to separate people from each other
- using back-to-back or side-to-side working whenever possible
- staggering arrival and departure times
- reducing the number of people each person has contact with by using ‘fixed teams or partnering’

27 GDPR Privacy Statement
Your information will be held by AMI Marine.
28 How we use your information
This privacy notice is to let you know how we promise to look after your personal information.
This includes what you tell us about yourself, what we learn by having you as a customer, and the choices you give us about what if any marketing information you may want us to send you.
This notice explains how we do this and tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.
29 Our Privacy Promise
- To keep your data safe and private.
- Not to sell your data.
- To give you ways to manage and review your marketing choices at any time.
Data Protection law changed on 25 May 2018 as the Data Protection Act 2018 came into effect, implementing the General Data Protection Regulations [GDPR].
This notice sets out your rights under the new law.
30 How the law protects you
As well as our Privacy Promise, your privacy is protected by law. This section explains how that works.
Data Protection regulations say that we can use personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so.
This includes any sharing of it outside the Company. The law says we must have one or more of these reasons:
- To fulfil an order or contract we have with you, or
- When it is our legal duty, or
- When it is in our legitimate interest, or
- When you consent to it.
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information.
But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. If we rely on our legitimate interest, we will tell you what that is.
Basically our legitimate interest is the commercial relationship related to the services we provide/support you with.
31 Where we collect personal information from
We may collect personal information about you (or your business) from these sources:
- Data you give to us
- When you apply for our products and services

34 Sending data offshore
We do NOT send your data offshore or outside of the EEA, however some of our marketing databases may be held overseas.
The only ‘data’ they have would be your personal email address.
For reference, they are NOT authorised to use this data in ANY form.
We may use your personal information to tell you about relevant products and offers. This is what we mean when we talk about ‘marketing’.
The personal information we have for you is made up of what you tell us, and data we collect when you use our services.
We study this to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services, and offers may be relevant for you.
We can only use your personal information to send you marketing messages if we have either your consent or a ‘legitimate interest’.
That is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. It must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you.
You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages by contacting us at any time.
Whatever you choose, you’ll still receive statements and other important information such as updates or changes to our existing products and services.
We may ask you to confirm or update your choices if you take out any new products or services with us in the future. We will also ask you to do this if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.
If you change your mind you can update your choices at any time
36 How long we keep your personal information
We will keep your personal information for as long as you are a customer of AMI Marine Limited.

43 General References = The Principles of good Data Protection
- processed lawfully, fairly, and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals;
- collected for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes shall not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes;
- adequate, relevant, and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;
- accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay;
- kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals; and
- processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction, or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
