Snowmobile

Covid-19 – Keep calm and wash your hands

It’s very important for us that our customers are in a safe environment and therefor we keep everything clean and disinfected before customers enter our facilities for Snowmobile tours in Iceland.

We are activating a chapter in our safety-plan in case of infectious diseases such as Covid-19 or the coronavirus. All guests and employees are responsible for properly cleaning their own hands to prevent infection. Everyone needs to disinfect their hands before entering any vehicle on our tours and when customers come to our Glacier Huts to get ready for snowmobile tours, they are requested to disinfect their hands again.

This is in accordance with our own HSE plan, what the Icelandic Travel Industry Association and what the Icelandic Tourism Board has issued.

Hand sanitizer

At the end of the day, we clean the helmets and overalls with a special antiseptic called Virkon which is sprayed on the overalls and the helmets. This chemical is left on them for about 30 minutes and then wiped off with a wet cloth. The balaclavas that our customers use under their helmets are only used once and then they are cleaned in a washing machine.

We wash our gloves as often as possible and the floors are cleaned with a substance called Antibact which is a very good antiseptic. Toilets are cleaned with the same material at the end of each day. We use paper towels to dry our hands after using the restroom, instead of a normal towel and we urge our customers to wash their hands with soap.

Wash your hands

We hope that these measures will put your mind at ease and shows you that we’re taking many precautions to prevent infection, with your safety in mind. The Icelandic Directorate of Health is monitoring the issue closely and informs the public of the current situation.

Varnir gegn smitsjúkdómum.

Íslenska

Okkur hjá Mountaineers of Iceland er mjög hugað að öryggi og heilsu starfsmanna og viðskiptavina okkar.  Það er okkur mjög mikilvægt að halda öllu hreinu hjá okkur.  Í einu og öllu förum við eftir hreinlætisplani sem er í öryggisáætlun okkar og tilmælum Landlæknis er varðar hreinlæti.

Þar af leiðandi höfum við gripið til þessa ráðstafanna vegna Covid-19 og annarra sambærilegra smitsjúkdóma:

- Áður en sest er upp í faratæki okkar þurfa allir að sótthreinsa á sér hendurnar. Einnig áður en komið er í starfsstöðvar okkar við Langjökul til að klæða sig í viðeigandi fatnað.
- Viðskiptavinir fá allir hrein buff (höfuðklúta) til þess að fyrirbyggja snertingu við hjálma.
- Við reynum eftir bestu getu að tryggja að það sé 2 metrar á milli viðskiptavina. Við biðjum einnig viðskiptavini okkar að virða 2 metra regluna.

Allir snertifletir eru þrifnir nokkrum sinnum á dag og einnig eru gallarnir og hjálmarnir spreyjaðir með hreinsiefni eftir notkun með efni sem heitir Virkon. Það er sótthreinsandi efni og drepur alla sýkla sem það kemst í snertingu við. Buffin og hanskarnir eru svo þrifin í lok dag og einungis notuð einu sinni á dag til að koma í veg fyrir smit.

We at Mountaineers of Iceland are very concerned about the safety and health of our employees and our customers. It is very important for us to keep everything clean. All in all, we follow a hygiene plan that is in our safety plan and the recommendation of the Medical Director of Health regarding hygiene.
As a result, we have taken these measures for Covid-19 and other comparable infectious diseases:

- Before settling into our vehicles, everyone needs to disinfect their hands. Also before coming to our local offices at Langjökull to dress in appropriate clothing.
- Customers are all given a clean buff (headscarf) to prevent helmet contact.
- We try our best to ensure that it is 2 meters between customers. We also ask our clients to respect the 2-meter rule.

All contact surfaces are cleaned several times a day and also the overalls and helmets are sprayed with detergent after use with a substance called Virkon. It is an antiseptic and kills any germs it comes into contact with. The scarves and gloves are then cleaned at the end of the day and used only once a day to prevent infection.
