“Either you work safely here, or you don’t work here,” summarizes Danny de Jong, Coordinator Quality and Safety at Hago. “That may sound a bit harsh, but you can’t ignore safety.”
Hago Rail Services operates in an environment where risks are high. That is why safety is undisputed number one priority. Before employees start working at Hago, they are well trained and made aware of all risks. Of course in close cooperation with the Dutch Railway Company NS.
“We pay attention to Safety on a daily basis. At start of the service, during the execution of the work, in reports, etc.. Moreover, having safety ambassadors within the organization ensures that safety is always top of everybody’s mind.”
In order to clearly identify where things are going well and where there is still room for improvement, Hago uses Safety Dashboard. A robust safety management system developed in the Netherlands. All safety issues can be monitored in clear and real-time updated KPI dashboards.
