Quality, Safety, Health & Environment
Our organisation focuses on a stringent and high-level QHSE policy that ensures the level of safety is continuously improved and every status quo is questioned. (Un)announced inspections of the barges by our employees, continuously training our personnel and detailed investigations of possible incidents are the approaches we value. We gladly advise barge owners on which points they can improve, and if needed, we aid in the implementation thereof.
Continuously perfecting this system, complying with the TMSA (Tanker Management and Self Assessment) rules and scoring flawless on the EBIS (European Barge Inspection Scheme) are standards we want to measure ourselves by. Safety, health, environment and quality are core notions in our organisation en we strive to always answer to the strictest norms in this regard.
We continuously strive for optimisation, and constantly challenge our internals trough external audits. The outcome of these audits is automatically transferred to points of action, so each employee in our organisation is expected to implement these, so the desired improvement can be reached.
To facilitate this, software was developed that makes continuous follow up possible, facilitates communication with the barges, and simplifies a strict follow up. This system will constantly be improved and have data added to it, with the sole purpose of avoiding incidents.
Our people bring in the business and as an organization we maximize them. Each input is valued to make improvements to processes.The well-being of our people, their "feeling well" is of utmost importance and directly leads to the well-being of our organisation. The barges in NAVAL NAVIGATION NAVIGATION fleet which have a Green Award can be found in our fleet list.
Twice a year NAVAL INLAND NAVIGATION organizes captain meetings, during which QHSE topics are prominently on the agenda. This to underline the importance thereof. Sharing information, giving and receiving trainings in combination with a look into the QHSE results are key.
We are holder of ISO 9001: 2015
Which indicates the fact that Naval works according to the international standard for quality management system.
As Naval Inland Navigation we are also an active member of Platform Zero Incidents (PZI).
We see sharing of knowledge related to QHSSE topics as an essential part of our business.
