Best in class in safety and quality

Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) are the cornerstones of Verwater’s operations – we aim to be best in class.

Our goal is an incident-free workplace and the highest level of performance, in accordance with applicable legislation and standards. We aim for continuous improvement of our HSEQ performance through forward thinking, adequate supervision, education and training, and by evaluation of (near) incidents and deviations.

Verwater’s management and HSE and QA/QC coordinators ensure frequent on-site presence, coaching our people and identifying potential risks. Furthermore, we have rolled out a Safety and Leadership program across our sites and performed a Safety Culture Survey. This allows us to further increase safety and to create awareness and strong leadership among our people when it comes to decision-making and risk prevention. We have created an open business culture based on transparent communication. Verwater is a proud learning organization, continuously striving to further improve HSEQ performance.
