NINA at Work - Number 1 / 2021

HOW CAN WE MAINTAIN FOCUS ON SAFETY AND KEEP CONVERSATION GOING

The COVID-19 virus has affected the life and work of everyone on the planet. What does this mean for NINA? In this NINA at Work, we look at how current restrictions have led to opportunities, because under these circumstances in particular, it’s important to keep the conversation going.


BRINGING SUBCONTRACTORS INTO THE ‘NINA FLOW’

Arjan Ottink, OCM, and Nick Troost, DOCM, took the new NINA E-learning course from home before starting work on the Triton Knoll wind turbine project. The project ran from June through November 2020, so right in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis. This meant the opportunities for coming together for a NINA session were limited. They found that taking the NINA E-learning course in advance was a good alternative.


IT’S POSSIBLE TO INSPIRE AND ENERGIZE EACH OTHER ONLINE TOO

In January, Menno van der Ploeg, Director Projects at Boskalis Nederland and Jan Tetteroo, Assistant Foreman, took part in an online NINA Management training course. Its format and degree of interaction came as a positive surprise to both of them.
