Have the spirit.
Purmerend, Netherlands
Safety and Facility Coordinator, Benelux

Spotlight on health and safety

I’m the Safety and Facility Coordinator for Benelux. This means I promote safety among our employees and am responsible for taking safety awareness to a higher level and keeping it there. For example, I register accidents and near accidents, complete work-site inspections and follow through on the implementation of safety and health practices. As facility coordinator at Purmerend, I coordinate facility and IT purchases, supervise warehouse activities and do many other things. Needless to say, no day is the same.

Living by the values

It gives me great satisfaction to support my colleagues each and every day – to keep them safe, satisfied, and productive. And when everything runs smoothly, this also shows to our customers what a great team of specialists, technicians, salesmen, and other personnel we have. It’s an indication that we won’t let the customer down and that we keep our promises. Only if we are proud of what we do can we keep the cranes of our customers working safely and productively.

The future looks bright

It’s great to work for a strong company that makes the most technologically advanced cranes ever built. Starting from my first job as a warehouse manager in 1998 through to my current job, I have found Konecranes to have a culture that is trustful and encourages personal development. I myself have attended training programs and am glad for the personal guidance I have received from my colleagues. Please join us if you have the spirit to follow our values.
