MICHIEL

Michiel is Captain of the Amadeus Aquamarijn.

FOR ME THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT NO ONE IS AFRAID TO TALK ABOUT SAFETY

As the Captain, you are responsible for the crew, but you cannot keep an eye on everything. Therefore, it is important that all crew members communicate clearly what kind of work they are doing. "On board we do dangerous work. The risk of injury is enormous. That's why safety awareness has to be high.”
