“As a Safety and Security Consultant, I have several roles. For example, take the project I am currently involved in, the strengthening of the Houtribdijk. Rijkswaterstaat (the client) built this dam in the early seventies between the IJsselmeer and the Markermeer with a connecting road between Enkhuizen and Lelystad. The embankment no longer meets the standards of the Water Legislation and needs reconstruction on both sides. During the project, the Houtribdijk will stay open for traffic and recreation. I am the liaison between the client and the contractor in the areas of labour safety, traffic safety and nautical safety. The goal is to realise the most safe environment before, during and after the construction phase for the workers and the users of the dam.”
“I see it as a great challenge to integrate safety in the DNA of the project, because at the end of the day we all want to come home safely.”
