Contact doctor by phone

If you have cold symptoms, please do not introduce yourself personally to our company doctor. Please contact her or your family doctor by telephone.

Corona warning app

Since 17.06.2020 it is possible to use the Corona-Warn App to determine contact with infected persons more quickly and easily and to determine the risk of infection.

We hereby expressly recommend all persons employed at the shipyard to install this app and to pass on this recommendation to all persons in their environment in order to further reduce the risk of the Corona virus spreading. More detailed information can also be found in various languages on the website of the Federal Government:

Business trips

Business trips are possible again, but must be kept to a minimum.

Business trips are approved by the responsible head of department.


Face-to-face meetings are possible again under consideration of protective measures (distance rule; mask obligation (less than 1.5 metres distance); ventilation of the room).

However, face-to-face meetings are to be reduced to a minimum. Video conferencing should continue to be used where possible.

Face-to-face meetings are to be kept as short as possible.

Reopening of the canteens

The reopening is subject to strict hygiene regulations. Thus, payment is only possible without cash via the id cards (for external guests via guest cards). The cards can be credited in the same way as for the coffee machines.

Please note the obligation to wear mouth protection and the minimum distance of 1.5 m. The mouth-nose protection may of course be removed at the site when food is being consumed.

Please disinfect your hands before entering the canteens!

Seating is limited. We ask for your understanding that when all seats are occupied, you can only order take-away.

Please adhere to the respective break times.

Use of medical face masks

From now on, surgical or medical masks must be used instead of fabric masks on the
premises of Neptun Werft if the minimum distance
of 1.5 m cannot be maintained. Furthermore, we always recommend wearing a surgical or medical mask inside buildings.

Where can I get a surgical or medical mask?
Employees from the industrial/manufacturing sector receive surgical or medical masks
from their foreman. For administrative staff, masks are provided in the administration building.

Self-test offer

In order to detect mainly asymptomatic infections and to break infection chains quickly, two self-tests per week are provided for all employees who do not work permanently from the home office.

Each test is accompanied by instructions (explanation with pictures and a link to a video) and must be carried out according to the instructions.

If the test result is positive, the employee is not allowed to go to the shipyard.

If a test is positive, contact your manager, family doctor or the medical standby service immediately on 116 117.

Misuse of the tests handed out (e.g. passing them on or selling them to third parties) will result in consequences.

The self-tests are handed out at the main security station.

Adapted shift model

To ensure that the zoning works as planned and that contact with other colleagues is avoided, specific shift times have been allocated to the zones.

Entering the shipyard premises is permitted a maximum of 10 minutes before the changing time of the corresponding working time. Entering the yard outside these times is prohibited.

Reporting of corona / suspected cases

In view of the current situation with the Corona virus and virus mutations, immediate notification of suspected cases, infected persons and their contacts is imperative in order to break the chains of infection immediately.
