Safety training

Generally there is an increased potential for risk on construction sites, in hydraulic construction projects this is even more intensive because of the strong environmental influences. The potential dangers when clearing explosive ordnance are so varied and unavoidable that it is more understandable in this area at the latest that we have a particular interest in the subject of safety.

The safety of our employees is always our top priority. In order to anchor the professional actions of our employees in a dangerous situation, we arrange regular training in safety-related matters. The aim of the training courses is to minimise safety risks as much as possible – but also to react properly in a serious case and to recall the learned assistance. The knowledge gained in theory is queried in practical emergency drills under real conditions and procedures are trained.

 

Emergency drills

At regular intervals, realistic emergency scenarios are drawn up, together with the emergency teams from the coastguard and other emergency services, which help both us and the emergency services involved to practise emergency responses. The aim is to anchor and make automatic the learned actions in an emergency, while at the same time also checking interfaces and communication chains.

Whether a fire on board, ordnance explosion or even a personal accident on high seas – all scenarios that nobody wants to experience. However, they can happen, and then it is good that the necessary steps are immediately and correctly taken. By everyone involved. Which is why everyone gets involved in the emergency drills, from the German Central Command for Maritime Emergencies to customs, rescue cruisers or fire service, to the German navy.
