Wagenborg Nedlift and Wagenborg GmbH certified for Step 3 of the Safety Culture Ladder

We are proud of our recent certification for step 3 of the Safety Culture Ladder in the working area: “The execution of horizontal, vertical and special transport with associated assembly, engineering and project management”

We are constantly improving safety awareness and our safety culture. Our goal: zero accidents. Our motto: “Everyone returns home safely at the end of the working day, every day!”


We report, investigate, evaluate and provide feedback on these reports and (near) incidents. In addition, we promote safety awareness and safe behaviour in all layers of the organisation.


"The future of safety is in behaviour and culture, much more so than in rules and regulations only.” 

Bertwill Mulder – manager HSEQ

Improving safety at work with the Safety Culture Ladder

The Safety Culture Ladder is an instrument to measure safety awareness, attitude and behaviour in a company. The aim is to stimulate safe working among companies and their suppliers. The higher the safety awareness, the higher the awarded step on the ladder.

“We have a Sicherheits-Bratwurst!”

The HSEQ department of Wagenborg Nedlift has been actively working on increasing safety awareness. Examples include the poster campaign “Job went well or job done safely?” and the challenge for the best improvement proposal. Other examples are the safety BBQ, the Safety Bratwurst (in Germany) and the Safety Snack events we organised at the initiative of the Regional Managers. All these initiatives were intended to bring improvement proposals to the forefront and to encourage discussion on the subject of 'safety' in an informal and easily accessible setting.

Highlights from the report

Aboma's auditors have highlighted the strengths of Wagenborg Nedlift and Wagenborg GmbH in the report. This is something we are very proud of!

  • A characteristic of all our offices: an open culture and consideration for each other. Much value is given to the home situation and on a good work-private balance for employees.

  • We have independently working employees who are passionate about what they do. They are proud of the company and its equipment. They also contribute ideas and solutions to improve safety.

  • The board and management are very involved in the company’s operation. Lines of communication within the company are short.

  • Onboarding (training and introduction) of new employees is solid.

  • We offer plenty of career opportunities including possibilities for internal advancement and an effective training programme.

More and more clients are considering SCL certification to be important, as do we. We are not resting on our laurels after having been awarded this credential. Our priorities for the coming years remain: “Zero accidents” and “Everyone returns home safely at the end of the working day, every day!”
