About Et

    The ‘Sherlock Holmes from North Holland’ is cooperative and controlling.

    Commissioning is more than just a technology. It’s also about people. Are all previously made (partial) reports and other documents correct? From the fire safety plan till the flow-thru report and from the installation scheme till the evacuation plan This is the second phase of the work in which the ‘Sherlock Holmes from North Holland’ slowly but surely turns himself into the leader of the “wolf pack”: Only by cooperation you can ultimately achieve a top result. But this is a collaboration without scruples. Each member must prove that he is doing, has done and / or can do a good job. A mentality of survival of the fittest that Bertus Toering also imposes daily on himself with a strict discipline from early in the morning until the late in the evening. That is necessary, because overseeing any small detail in the entire network can cost human lives.

    The entire process of commissioning and controlling the people responsible for installation work is kept up-to-date with progress letters. In addition, there are personal protocols: who is authorised to what and who is not? The “wolf from Winkel” analyses the outcome and makes a judgment if someone is strong enough to be a member of the “pack”. After all, the weakest link determines the strength of the team and thus the quality of the end result. A thorough analysis of someone’s personal performance is, of course, not only done on paper. It often starts with the famous “Fingerspitzengefühl”. An intuitive feeling triggered by the impression that the senior staff of ET Management and Advice gets during the daily work of a person. In which a certain attitude of a person may arouse suspicion. Or simply by looking deeply into someone’s eyes with the non-verbal question: are you up to the task? If the “pack leader” detects doubt, extra attention is paid to that person during the rest of the assessment process. In this way, you as a client can be confident that after the completion of a construction everyone involved, employees, visitors and – in the case of a hospital – patients will be very much assured of a safe environment.
