“OFFERING AN UNPARALLELED RANGE OF SPECIALIST CONTRACTING ACTIVITIES”
safe AND SUSTAINABLE With safety as our core value we have developed a strict safety culture without any compromise. Our commitment is an incident-free work environment. Therefore Boskalis created the NINA safety program. NINA (No Injuries No Accidents) sets clear values and rules, which explain what we expect from our people with regard to their safety behavior. NINA makes people aware of their own responsibility regarding safety and encourages them to take action if operations are unsafe and approach others if they are at risk. NINA is embedded in our organizational systems and managed by leading indicators. Boskalis is known for its dedication to the environment. Wherever possible, we work to mitigate environmental concerns. We are one of the frontrunners in testing the use of sustainable marine biofuels on our vessels to lower our carbon footprint. Furthermore, with our ‘Building with Nature’ initiative we encourage stakeholders to join forces to research, understand and reduce the impact of offshore and marine operations on the environment.
