In February, Board Member Theo Baartmans introduced the Mooring Workbox: “One wrong maneuver while mooring or unmooring can have a huge
impact. Eliminating these risks is therefore a top priority.”
The Mooring Workbox combines technical information (properties of winches and clusters, the force needed to exceed their breaking point) with awareness (monitoring risks and sharing experiences) and knowledge of safety measures (choosing a safe position, communicating, signaling).
The Fleet departments in the Dredging and Offshore divisions are going to roll out workbox across the entire central fleet. Special trainers’ teams have been put together for this purpose, with their own captains. Roll-out within the local fleet in the home markets will follow via SHE-Q.
