Willem Crouwkamp currently works as a freelance health and safety consultant in the construction industry after an established career with well-known organisations such as AVENG Grinaker LTA, Eskom and Anglo American just to name a few.
He is a generalist across a broad range of health and safety related subjects, and he is particularly interested in the application of OHS related laws and regulations that relate to the construction environment.
Willem says, “it’s no secret that prevention is always your best line of defence when it comes to dealing with incidents and accidents…but they still happen and sadly it is a fact of life on any construction project! The reality is that it is a tall order to start a construction project and finish it without a single incident or accident. But with all the legislative changes hitting construction companies in one go it is easy to lose track of what actually has to get done and by when. The key is not safety first but rather a balancing act between safety, quality and productivity.
That is why I am thrilled to be joining the Alusani® Course Leader faculty as I am passionate about changing the perception that health and safety training is a dull subject when it is anything but! I plan to make all of my courses as interactive, informative and as engaging as possible.”
