Safety: Vehicle Movements (on demand)

Presented by Mr Dries de Paepe and Mr Kristof Van Gysel from Jan De Nul, the safety webinar is about Vehicle Movements. Experts in the subject, the speakers will provide insights on how operational control is obtained when dealing with heavy machinery.


Land Reclamation operations involve risks related to heavy machinery. These operations require thorough planning in order to control the involved risks as they often involve many hidden and obvious dangers with little room for errors, and potentially severe consequences. As such, operational control for vehicle movements is of paramount importance when dealing with heavy machinery.


Mr Dries De Paepe is Area QHSSE Advisor within Jan De Nul for more than ten years now. Dries has been working for over ten years on international projects worldwide such as the New Parallel Runway Project and Rock Load out works / Rock installation works in Australia, Civil Construction Project in Respect of a Petroleum Refinery Plan in Nigeria, Waterfront project in Dubai, and the Manifa field Causeway and Island Construction Project in Saudi Arabia.

Mr Kristof Van Gysel is Fleet manager for Jan De Nul’s subdivision. Kristof worked for more than ten years abroad for Jan De Nul on various projects in Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Oman. On those highly demanding projects, various technological innovations were implemented on the surface mobile equipment to improve operational control for vehicle movements.
