Safety

Safety

We want to ensure that safe working is a permanent part of our activities. Our permanent and hired staff and the subcontractors’ personnel must be able to work safely, so that everyone can return home sfe anad sound at the end of the day. We therefore aspire to an injury-free Ballast Nedam. Everyone who works on our projects must therefore be continuously aware of the safety risks. The principle for all of us is I’ll work safely or not at all! 

Safety is one of Ballast Nedam’s core values and we devote a great deal of attention to it. Nevertheless we encounter too many unsafe situations, accidents and injuries each year. That is not acceptable. Ballast Nedam’s safety policy for 2015-2017 is to create a proactive safety culture with increased attention paid to the role of the management. 

Ballast Nedam draws no distinction between its own employees and subcontractors with regard to safe working. On our construction sites you work safely or not at all. We encourage our subcontractors to work safely by applying the policy in full to our projects. That means that we engage in a dialogue with subcontractors and at the same time supervise compliance with the agreements entered into.
