The objective of Vejdirektoratets project ‘Arbejdspladser uden ulykker’ is to attain a substantial reduction of the accident frequency in all Vejdirektoratets operations, including construction, operation and maintenance. Vejdirektoratet participates in the Safety First project, headed by Thomasen Safety with Bygherreforeningen (DACC) as project owner. and Realdania as sponsor. Vejdirektoratets executive management has, inspirered by Thomasen Safety designed an ambitious programme for improving safety standards throughout the organisation and implementation is well underway.
Jens Holmboe, Managing Director of Vejdirektoratet: “This is about constant focus from the leadership – both with the construction client and the contractor. The work with and importance of a safe work environment is not new to Vejdirektoratet. However, with our participation in Bygherreforeningens (DACC) project and with the highly qualified advisory from Jakob Thomasen, we sharpened our focus on how we as a construction client can further improve our safety performance.”
“Jakob Thomasen used his experience to make it absolutely clear that a well organised construction site with good house keeping is both safer and more economically efficient.”
