While the projects Voortman Steel Construction realizes are becoming larger and more complex, the safety requirements are becoming higher. That is why we are continuously improving safety by means of our own Think Safe – Work Safe program. In advance of the national Safety Awareness Day on Friday the 16th of March next, VSC organized its annual Safety Day last Friday.
Knowledge on safety is of course very important, but working safely is mainly a question of awareness and acting accordingly. Therefore, the field staff and work planners were offered a varied and practical program. Following the successful Safety Day last year, the foremen and supervisors took part in this year’s program as well. During various workshops building situations were simulated of which the participants had to assess and counter the risks. Loxam/Workx offered a workshop on the construction and use of the mobile scaffold and Eurosafe Solutions gave a workshop on fall protection. To conclude this informative day, the participants played a game which further summarized the day’s content.
