In its continuous aim to improve its Safety performance, Den Hartogh Logistics, together with the safety specialist organisation Samurai@Work, developed and launched a global multi-year Safety Culture program within the Den Hartogh organisation.
The program, which is called The Power of Safe, is unique and innovative. It is based on the use of the physiological structure of the human brain as basis for safety culture development.
The Power of Safe program was first launched at a multiple days session where all Senior Managers of the Den Hartogh branch offices from 18 countries around the globe were gathered.
Pieter den Hartogh, Group Managing Director at Den Hartogh Logistics, stated “It is the responsibility of everyone at Den Hartogh Logistics that we all return home safe after a day of work. Excellent Safety performance can not be reached only through systems, rules and procedures or safety equipment. Working safe is much dependent on our behaviour and for that reason we need to be aware of our behaviour and understand our actions.”
Den Hartogh Logistics has appointed the safety specialists of Samuai@work to manage and guide the program. Samurai@work was chosen for its pragmatic and innovative approach and its strong resume of booked results.
Last month’s feature on cryogenic valves described them as ‘essential to our industry’ due to their daily dealings with cryogenic matter. But if there were no tanks to store the substance in, or tankers to deliver the payload from production to customer, we would have no need for a valve.
Den Hartogh Logistics, a family business responsible for around 2500 bulk gas and chemical transportations every week, has signed a covenant, proving the firm’s green credentials.
