Quality, Safety, Health & Environment


qhsse training naval


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.


Naval Inland Navigation puts great value to the management system and the book of quality we use. Both on board and in the office it counts as a guide for our employees.

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.
We continuously invest a lot of resources and time to attain the zero incident policy we strive for. Weekly communication between the QHSE responsible and the management, monthly safety meetings with the entire office, and monthly reports of the QHSE responsible towards the barge owner exists to keep focus on this topic.

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.
Health & Environment
We attach great importance to the impact we have on the environment as an organisation. Continuously we investigate how we as a company can pursue lower emissions. For example, our employees drive hybrid cars, we use ECO logic office equipment and move in the second quarter of 2017 to an energy neutral office with green roof. We continuously challenge ourselves to be better, not only in service but also socially and not just for our customers but also for our employees.

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.
