Tools & training
At Van Oord, safety is about more than knowing the rules and procedures. It is about proactive safety leadership. This message is the core of our safety programme Say YES to Safety. Van Oord offers a wide range of safety items to make sure everyone working on a project location or on board a vessel is equipped with the right safety tools.
Life saving rules
Van Oord has nine life saving rules focused on the activities with the highest potential safety risk. We want everyone to go home safe every day and to eliminate all injuries and incidents. Our life saving rules underpin our safety statement and principles and these rules are mandatory for all Van Oord employees, subcontractors and visitors.
Stop the job
Safety comes first. At Van Oord, we take this literally. Every employee, whatever their job or position, has the right to stop work as soon as the conditions cease to be safe. This 'Stop the Job' authority not only helps ensure employee well-being, but it also establishes field-wide responsibility for the safety of all operations. We urge every employee to keep an eye out for potentially unsafe situations or processes and stop the job until the problem is corrected.
