Holistic Safety Assessments

Safety incidents will keep happening until you understand WHY they occur, WHERE they are most likely to occur, and WHAT to do to prevent them. DEKRA Holistic Safety Assessments provide these vital insights along with the power to act on them.

We apply our industry-leading scientific perspectives on Organizational Safety & Reliability and decades of Process Safety expertise to pinpoint your current risk exposures and identify solutions to reduce them. The resulting roadmap guides you in becoming a Learning Organization that systematically and continuously identifies risks, implements sustainable controls, and monitors performance—all attributes of a High Reliability Organization (HRO) excelling in quality, safety, and efficiency.

Leverage Focused, Scalable Holistic Safety Assessments

Many different elements influence safety risks and exposures. It’s more than what you produce, the materials involved, or the activities you engage in. The human factor is critical—how people at all levels behave, your underlying organizational culture, and the exposures created by day-to-day work. DEKRA’s targeted assessments help you evaluate the full spectrum of safety risk exposure and identify a strategic approach to sustaining countermeasures.
