DEME – Worldwide Safety Stand Down VIDEO

International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) recently released a video named Worldwide Safety Stand Down.

DEME, one of the nominees for the IADC Safety Award 2017, actively addresses safety and since 2008, its safety department dedicated itself to instil a company-wide “Safety Culture” through its self-initiated program cultural and behavioral safety program “Colleagues, Help Injuries to Leave DEME” (CHILD).

After eight years, the initiative was taken to the next level with CHILD5, which emphasizes four pillars necessary for safety: engagement, collaboration, communication and leadership.

One of the program’s noteworthy components was the Worldwide Safety Stand Down. On Thursday, 30 March 2017, DEME’s CEO simultaneously halted all of DEME’s field and office operations around the world for two hours.

During the long time frame, every DEME employee, as well as many independent contractors working on stopped projects, watched a video which informed about a recent incident and detailed the results of an investigation into its causes.
