Safety Plan Update – v3.2

I’ve just uploaded a new revision of our safety plan

The main updates in a nutshell:

  • I’ve changed from using Adobe InDesign for layout to LaTeX. The final output is not so very different, but using TeX will give substantial advantages when it comes to change tracking and comparing revisions (which is really, really helpful when trying to maintain multiple languages and trying to figure out which paragraphs need to be re-translated!).
  • Otherwise, I have incorporated some feedback from the Vatnajökull National Park during the application process for getting my permit renewed. Nothing earth shattering, but the safety plan is now hopefully a bit more clear about my client profile, weather concerns, and the remoteness about the area I operate in.
  • There is now a space where I plan to go into more detail about the changes made in each revision and other information that may be important to incorporate, but should be kept separate from the main matter to keep it concise.

Safety Plan Updates

Our safety plan is a living document. It is updated whenever we identify aspects that could be improved, and in recent conversations with Tún, our certifying agent for the VAKINN quality standards, we received some valuable feedback that we have immediately begun to incorporate.

Safety Plan 2.4.1 – ENGLISH

Öryggisáætlun 2.4.1 – ÍSLENSKA

Policy Updates

I have updated our Safety Plan, and we now also have a formal Environmental Policy on our website. Nothing surprising in either document, I guess.

COVID-19 Guidelines

We have put together a dedicated page with information on how we are addressing the spread of the new Coronavirus (COVID-19). If you have any questions, please do not hesitate and reach out to us!
