Duurzaamheid en veiligheid in de bouw

In this video Mr. Hak van der Sijp from HDI Risk Consulting in the Netherlands discusses how the reintroduction of flammable building materials used in construction due to a new focus on sustainability requires extra caution and preventative measures to be taken against the risk of fire. What follows is a summary text of the video which was originally recorded in Dutch.

After a large part of Amsterdam burned down in 1452, for the second time, it was decreed that houses must be built of stone, and straw roofing replaced by tile, and until the 20th century, fire-hazardous companies were increasingly being banished to the outskirts of the city.

Now, as construction methods are more and more focused on sustainability, previously avoided flammable materials are being reintroduced. One common example of this is the use of more insulation material to meet the required insulation value in accordance with the “Building Decree”.

By reintroducing flammable materials in building again, we are increasing the potential for large fires. Fires are a huge attack on the environment. Sustainable building needs to take account the consequences for the environment in the event of a fire, and seek to limit possible fires by taking proper preventative measures.

Het belang van schadepreventie in wagenparken

In this video Mr. Henrico Hendriksen from HDI Risk Consulting in the Netherlands discusses how good communication and safety practices in the transport sector result in cost savings for companies and a safer working environment for their employees. What follows is a summary text of the video which was originally recorded in Dutch.

Good safety practices are essential for a sustainable transport sector. Companies which work actively on managing a culture of safety cause less accidents, sustain fewer losses, use less fuel and have a lower rate of absenteeism.

By making employees aware of the risks and the costs of damages, a company culture of sustainability and safety will arise almost organically. The resulting practices will benefit the company in the form of fuel savings, lower emission production, fewer damage to and longer lasting components.

Veilige en duurzame inzet van alternatieve energiebronnen

In this video Mr. Henrico Hendriksen from HDI Risk Consulting in the Netherlands gives advice as to how to mitigate the new risks posed by the use of alternative fuels. What follows is a summary text of the video which was originally recorded in Dutch.

In the transition to sustainability more and more alternative fuels are being used in the transport sector. With new techniques come new risks. Examples range from poorly produced Lithium Ion batteries, fires in solar panels, incidents with CNG (flashing flames from a bus in Wassenaar (NL) in 2012) and LNG (a cabin truck which exploded in 2017).

Companies need to be aware of the risks that using new energy sources can entail and make their employees aware of those risks by providing the appropriate information and training. Companies should also seek out agreements with emergency services such as salvage companies and the local fire brigade.

A risk expert from your insurer can also provide advise on this topic.

Veiligheid bij elektrisch rijden

In this video Mr. Henrico Hendriksen from HDI Risk Consulting in the Netherlands gives advice as to how to mitigate new risks posed by the ever increasing use of electric vehicles. What follows is a summary text of the video which was originally recorded in Dutch.

The use of electric vehicles, especially passenger cars, has increased in recent times and has created new unforeseen traffic risks. One well-known example is the absence of engine noise whereby cyclists and pedestrians do not hear the cars.

Motorists can assuage those risks and contribute to road safety by indicating direction and keeping sufficient distance, using headlights (even in the daytime) and by using extra alertness.

Kwaliteitsborging bij productiebedrijven

In this video Mr. Niels Flach from HDI Risk Consulting in the Netherlands discusses how good quality assurance practices decreases product failure and waste as well as increases safety. What follows is a summary text of the video which was originally recorded in Dutch.

Quality assurance at production companies ensures that failure scenarios are thought through beforehand. By preventatively incorporating risk assessment, repetition of incidents is prevented and the quality of your product, work processes and safety are increased. Imagine the prevention of industrial accidents or a bodily injury claim from a victim of an incorrectly produced product.
