One Team MDL during COVID-19

In times of a global crisis, the One Team MDL extends to all our clients, partners and colleagues.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect all our daily lives, we are committed to ensuring steps are taken to protect our employees, and their dependants, with a goal to reduce our exposure to the disease and the risk of it spreading, while maintaining support for our clients and operations in these unprecedented circumstances.

We continue to monitor the situation and follow the latest advice by the WHO and Scottish, UK and overseas governments. Our leadership teams continue to address and respond to the ever-changing conditions in the countries where our personnel are present and the guidelines and regulations that need to be adhered to.

MDL offshore and on-project teams

Our people involved in critical operations continue to do so, and we are working closely with our clients and partners to ensure the highest protection for all personnel. That includes following strict health guidelines, pre-mobilisation checks, adhering to travel and workplace policies, practicing good hygiene and social distancing where required.

We continue to work with clients on their specific requests for COVID control.

Your onshore contacts

We continue to adapt to the latest governmental policies. The measures are continually monitored, assessed and altered to suit the latest circumstances, ensuring employee safety.

Our offices are now open for pre-arranged visits, subject to a temperature check upon arrival.

We respect and support our office-based staff’s preference to continue to work from home, where it is practical to do so.

All personnel are being informed, through multiple channels, whether at home or in supporting the global operations, to maintain a high focus on personal hygiene, including washing hands for min. 20 sec, keeping workstations sanitised and avoiding physical contact in line with the current Scottish Government guidelines.

We encourage our clients and prospective partners to connect with us remotely, via email, phone calls or video conferencing; however, where required, face-to-face meetings can take place. Specific risk assessments will be performed for larger meetings.

One Team MDL

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our team for keeping our operations running safely, and for sticking to the MDL work ethic and core values which help ensure continuous supply of the natural resources required for the world’s everyday living.

Today, we have to keep a distance - but to get through this crisis, now more than ever we also need to stick together as One Team.
