LiS Award 2018 Winner – AB Hugo III Sanquilos Sealquil



We are pleased to announce that AB Hugo III Sanquilos Sealquil, VOS Sugar, has been selected as winner of the Vroon Leaders in Safety (LiS) Award 2018.


We received over 40 nominees for this year’s Award. Thanks to our vessels for their nominations, all of which were excellent examples of intervention preventing possibly major incidents. They highlight the continuing success of our Company-wide Leaders in Safety Programme.  


A shortlist of ten was chosen, with the final winner selected by the Vroon Group Board.


Our winner, AB Hugo III Sanquilos Sealquil, was operating a dedicated deck winch on board VOS Sugar, working together with fellow crew members and riggers from the project team on a cable-pulling and removal project.


While operating the winch on the final day of the project, AB Hugo III noticed the riggers trying to speed up operations by standing on the anchor wire instead of connecting it and using the tugger wire to release the force from the anchor wire. AB Hugo III halted operations and proceeded to the bridge where he explained his reasons for refusing to continue in an unsafe manner. The captain and client representative agreed that this was most definitely an unsafe act and all appreciated the intervention of Hugo III. A toolbox meeting was held on board to discuss the incident in detail.


We congratulate Hugo (and the colleagues who nominated him).


With his successful intervention, he rightly deserves to be our Leaders in Safety winner for 2018. In the near future, we will be thanking him in person and presenting his Award.
