Tunnel safety

Due to the decreasing environmental space in The Netherlands and the intensifying
use of the Dutch infrastructural network often is reached out for underground solutions.
Building tunnels is an obvious and self-evident choice. Hereby safety is of the utmost
importance, it does not matter if this involves a new tunnel or one that is already in use.

Because of the enclosed environment that tunnels bring forth, safety must be realised by intoning
appropriate measures. In a tunnel a accident, that is considered normal (when it would happen in open air),
can increase rapidly to a very dangerous situation.

In the scope of tunnel safety much is already regulated in international and national laws and legislations.

The experts of HSE-advies have proven their worth by carrying out riskanalysis concerning railwaytunnels and by being involved in realising acceptable safetylevels in various underground infrastructural projects.
