For Ballast Nedam Industriebouw, safety is top priority. The health, safety and well-being of our employees, customers, partners and all other stakeholders are the key success factors of our business. Our core values ‘looking after each other and getting home safely’ and ‘industrial construction together’ underline this. We have VCA certification for the petrochemical industry and as such operate at the very highest safety level. The combination of VCA-P and our ISO9001 certification ensures that our safety performance is continuously improving.

Working safely is a way of life at Ballast Nedam Industriebouw and the main criterion for the good and successful implementation of our projects. Together, we do our utmost to achieve this. Working safely and healthily applies to everyone, from our planners to site workers, from our carpenters to our quality officers and from our project leaders to our welders and fitters. From the calculation to implementation and delivery. Safety and a good performance go hand in hand. That starts and ends at home.

Anyone working for us can be assured of an employer who takes safe working conditions seriously. For our customers, partners and other stakeholders too, we not only want to be the best party, but also the safest. From our head office in the Botlek, our HSE management supports the organisation with their HSE expertise. In the projects themselves, dedicated HSE coordinators support and coach the project teams, using their specialist knowledge to raise safety awareness on site to an even higher level.

We are proud of our safety performance and believe that celebrating successes contributes to the motivation and job satisfaction, and forms the basis for new successes and better results. We therefore not only look at the lessons learned, but also at the successes we achieve together. For example, a safety award for outstanding safety performance, celebrating accident-free hours and a monthly newsletter in which we share success stories throughout the organisation.
