At Visser & Smit Bouw we never compromise on safety. It is fully integrated into our general working practice. Although our safety policy is VCA-certified and complies fully with current Health and Safety legislation we demand even more.


No accidents whatsoever, that's what we demand of ourselves. Safety must be a constant concern of ours. This means more than just following a number of rules, it is a way of working.
Our safety program WAVE, Be Alert! Safety First!, focuses on this awareness and behaviour. Training, coaching 'on the job', deploying safety officers, evaluating, identifying points for improvement... we do everything we can to continuously improve our policy and to 'secure' our objective.


Our safety rules

  • Use the prescribed personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Ensure that working areas are safely cordoned off
  • Use the proper (approved) work equipment and tools
  • Keep work areas tidy
  • Perform an LMRA (Last Minute Risk Analysis)
  • Do not work or drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Do not smoke outside the designated areas


The following values apply to all of Visser & Smit Bouw’s activities at all times:

  • Consistent, Safety is part of everything we do
  • Responsible, I am responsible for my own safety and that of others
  • Prepared to learn, I want to learn from accidents and near misses
  • Open, I call others to account for unsafe behaviour and safety
  • Action, I stop others working unsafely; if necessary I stop working
  • Respect, I accept that I am being approached about safety
  • Honest, I report all accidents and near misses


Our core value: Safety - We work safely, or we don't work
