Lifting & rigging course

The safety of our people is vital for the success we achieve as a company. We strongly believe that accident prevention is the key to improved operations. Through awareness-raising campaigns, lifelong learning and tailor-made guidelines, every employee at Jan De Nul is perfectly capable of maintaining operational control at all times. Below we share some recent comments from a training course that teaches our employees how to execute lifting operations safely.

Two years ago, Jan De Nul Group asked us to initiate a course on lifting and rigging operations. Since then, the curriculum has come a long way. Originally, we focused mainly on employees from the dredging division. Due to the growing interest from other divisions, we have broadened the course to meet the needs of the entire company. We worked intensively with various departments within Jan De Nul Group to incorporate the internal procedures for operational control. The result is now a course tailored to Jan De Nul and its wide range of internal and customer activities.

Good preparation and operational control are key to our success. It is in the nature of every employee to work according to our Image Think Act philosophy. Through both internal and external training courses, we create a culture of lifelong learning. At Jan De Nul we all share the same objectives: quality, safety, improved processes and satisfied customers.

The instructor has many years of experience as a crane operator and rigger. With this practical knowledge, he can link every piece of theory with an example from the field. This enables me to visualise lifting operations much better.

As a superintendent, you have the responsibility to organize the works in such a way that it can be done safely.  This course gives us the necessary knowledge to do so by focusing on situations we encounter on a daily basis.

I often encounter lifting operations. By carrying out such activities myself, I get a completely different perspective. In this course, all my theoretical and practical experience could be brought together. As such, I can more effectively monitor the safety aspects of future lifting operation.

During offshore projects, I see lifting operations every day. This course emphasizes the importance of every detail in lifting or rigging loads. Thanks to my experiences of the last few days, I feel that I am now able to think along with the technicians in such operations and support in finding solutions.

Colleagues from different divisions follow this course together. Everyone has a different background and approach, which teaches you a lot about safe working principles, but also about how we see operational control. Moreover, it helps me to better understand everyone’s role during the execution of our operations.
