Safety ladder certification

UPDATE SAFETY CULTURE LADDER

We are proud to announce that we have reached step 2 of the safety ladder!

As you can read below, from 1 January 2022 ViA (Safety in tenders) will be an obligation in the construction industry. We have chosen the Safety Culture Ladder tool to achieve this objective. The certification audit took place at the beginning of September. Various colleagues were asked to fill in a list of questions about safety, and the ISO/VCA/KAM committee showed what is already happening in the field of safety and safety awareness. All this together has led to our being awarded Step 2.

And we are happy with that!

What is the Safety Culture Ladder?

Safety and awareness remain a hot item in the construction industry in the Netherlands. In order to promote awareness and raise the safety culture to a higher level, joint agreements have been made within the construction industry, laid down in a Governance Code for Safety in Construction.

From 1 January 2022, contractors who have signed this GCVB will include safety awareness as an obligation in tenders and contracts, the so-called Safety in Tendering.

This awareness is expressed in the Safety Culture Ladder. This Safety Culture Ladder is a tool to measure safety awareness, attitude and behaviour in companies. The emphasis here is on the safety culture. It is intended to stimulate companies and their suppliers to consciously work safely.

To increase participation and awareness in companies, a certificate with accompanying audit for certification has been instituted.  This certification will be compulsory for contractors and principals.  The safety ladder works in steps; the higher the safety awareness in an organisation, the higher the awarded ladder step.  The ladder can be used in all sectors without making a distinction between clients, contractors or suppliers.

The aim is to reduce the number of unsafe situations, and therefore fewer incidents resulting in absence and/or damage.

At Sorba, we are busy preparing for the certification audit to be carried out this autumn, with the aim of being certified by 1 January 2022.

Measures Corona Virus

Measures Corona Virus

The coronavirus and the measures of the government to fight it, continue to have an impact on society. At Sorba we also put the necessary measurements in place and we want to keep our stakeholders informed about the potential consequences for our projects.

We keep a close look on the developments regarding the coronavirus and put the health and safety of our employees, clients, suppliers and partners first. Therefore, we follow the regulations of the governments and health organizations to limit the further spread of the coronavirus. At the same time, we want to keep the company and projects running as good as possible.

At Sorba we work together to keep our projects running as smooth as possible in these times. It is inevitable that the coronavirus affects Sorba and its activities, but the question remains how big the impact of the virus will be and how long this situation will last. The (future) regulations that are put in place by the government are leading in our measures. When our projects are affected either by planning or supply issues, our project managers will contact you as soon as possible. Through cooperation with you and our partners we will try to minimize the consequences.

We hope we informed you on our stance during these uncertain times. If you have any questions regarding your project please feel free to contact us at any time.

Sorba has a new company video!

In the past few years Sorba has grown and worked on magnificent projects. Therefore we thought a new company video was well deserved!

With this video we want to give you a quick overview of what we do and how we do it. You also see the renowned Dutch projects Sorba has completed in recent years. For instance the film museum EYE in Amsterdam, the public transport terminal in Arnhem and the office towers Mahler and 400 Beethovenstraat at the financial mile in Amsterdam.

Of course we have numerous other beautiful projects. Take a look at our portfolio to see more of our work!
