At Jan Snel, safety always has priority


Jan Snel stands believes that safety is a shared responsibility. Safe Together means keeping an eye on your safety as well as the safety of others.

We only build quickly if we can do it safely

Working in the construction sector involves risks. That is reality. Those risks can be mitigated, however, with a structural approach. We ensure safe working conditions around all of our work on projects and locations. And, of course, we carefully comply with all HSE regulations and requirements around health, safety and environmental standards. We know what the hazards are and follow the necessary measures to exclude risks.

It may seem obvious, but safety requires careful planning. We want to set up construction sites in such a way that work is performed safely from start to finish. That requires know-how, insight and, quite simply, a lot of experience. As you can see, our safety mindset extends well into project management.


In accordance with SCC standards

Naturally, all of our executive business components are SCC certified. Additionally, we are certified as FPAL supplier and are also ISO certified. We have a strict policy about signalling and reporting unsafe situations, high-risk operations, near misses and accidents. Our increased focus on this policy has resulted in an increased number of reports, along with an increase in safety. As an added bonus, we have ever-increasing insight into risks.

Comm’ant Safety Process Management

All safety incidents are recorded in the Business Process Management Software Comm’ant, so all people responsible are informed immediately. The employees see on their reports what action is taken and respond accordingly.




Workplace safety

Safety in the workplace is an important part of our ongoing work at Jan Snel. We continue to ensure that employees are aware of our applicable safety rules for entering and working in the factory and on project sites. These can be found in the new safety regulations and are also available as an animation.

The film is also available in English, German, Polish and Romanian, so our foreign temporary workers can be informed in their own languages.

Jan Snel stands for Safe Together. This means guarding personal safety but also keeping an eye out for the safety of others. Safety is a shared responsibility.

Jan Snel’s keys to a safe workplace

Safety awareness

Everyone from project manager to foreman to workers is aware of the risks.

Safety chain

All parties involved – client, contractor and subcontractors – work safely.

Responsible

Everyone is empowered to be critical, point out unsafe situations or risky behaviour, and take action immediately.

Zero tolerance

Unsafe situations are reported and resolved immediately.

Concrete actions within Jan Snel

To further encourage safety, we take a variety of concrete steps. We organise so-called toolbox meetings with our staff, where we highlight a safety aspect from daily practice. We also employ a QHSE coordinator, who coordinates risk management on projects and performs field checks. Of course, management and team leaders take their responsibilities seriously, with periodic workplace inspections and observation rounds. Inspection is carried out on the basis of a checklist for safety, health and environmental aspects. We don’t just consider the technical safety but also human (safety) behaviour, such as compliance with regulations and the use of personal protective equipment. Employees carry out LMRA checks before the start of the work on any project.

We ensure safe working conditions by removing risks, adapting our working methods, setting up clear working and safety instructions, and making available the appropriate personal protective equipment and approved, well-maintained tools. Subsequently, we monitor to ensure that everyone deals with these matters correctly. This requires a risk-conscious mindset and an atmosphere in which criticism is allowed. Everyone needs to be able to hold each other accountable for risky behaviour on the construction site and in the office. Employers who refuse access to a client or subcontractor without the prescribed PPE are not criticised but complimented.

At Jan Snel, we spend a lot of energy on instructing, informing and motivating our employees about safe working conditions. We continue to insist on this in practice and do not accept any shortcuts. Safety is a shared responsibility and Jan Snel works safely, period.
