NINA At Work - Number 1 / 2018

LOOKING AT ONESELF

Eugène van Dodeweerd (Director Fleet Management Offshore) and Steve van Hulle (Business Unit Director Transport & Marine Services) about the importance of reflection and consensus after an accident.

Each accident is one too many. But if something happens one should critically consider the way one acted and dare to take responsibility for it, with the aim of learning from it. Piet Bolt (Captain), Eugène van Dodeweerd (Director Fleet Management Offshore) and Steve van Hulle (Business Unit Director Transport & Marine Services) look back at the accident with the Union Lynx last summer.


“I WAS ACTUALLY DEVASTATED.”

Piet Bolt (Captain) looks back at the accident with the Union Lynx last summer.

Piet Bolt joined Smit directly after the nautical college. He has many years of experience in the offshore and with towing. The accident with the Union Lynx is the first one that happened under his leadership, he tells in his living room in Zuidhorn, while his wife is serving coffee and homemade apple pie.
