We say YES to safety

Everyone who works for Van Oord is expected to take responsibility for safety issues and deal with them proactively. Why is this important to Van Oord? It’s our licence to operate – it’s expected of us as a global player in the marine contracting sector – and it’s our moral obligation as well. Care for people is deeply rooted in our organisation. Working closely with our clients, working safely and with respect for one another and the environment. That’s how we work to achieve a healthy profit for our company. Working together proactively on safety is a natural part of that.

Unique safety programme

A simple, but powerful and positive message that indicates Van Oord is embracing safety: say YES to safety.  This unique safety programme reflects Van Oord’s attitude towards safe working. Safety is part of our everyday work and all people working for Van Oord are expected to be proactive in meeting their responsibility to work safely.

To encourage everyone to demonstrate his or her safety leadership, we offer a wide range of safety items. Commit to the safety principles and inspire others to do the same. Use the Say YES to safety guidance and lifesaving rules to express your responsibility to safety: Say YES to safety.
