There are lots of things that can make keeping everyone safe on the construction site a difficult task, from time pressures, misunderstandings and forgotten tasks to paperwork, overloaded schedules and communication problems between project partners. But functioning occupational health and safety is decisive to the success of complex construction projects.
DEKRA’s safety experts now offer the “DEKRA Safety Platform”; a cloud-based, integrated system available for the smart devices of EHS experts on construction sites, as well as project managers and specialist workers on site. The system guides users through daily safety tasks and provides the necessary information and aid. This makes it possible to bundle, control and assess risks, safety measures, adjustments and incidents on a central platform.
Safety management is controlled and documented on a single central platform for all companies involved. The data assessment and analysis helps project management draw attention to the important areas. Unlike information management software, the DEKRA Safety Platform focuses on the tasks and activities of the staff involved, precisely coordinating these in a way that saves time. The system also provides a function for actively managing emergencies.
DEKRA is a global leader in construction site safety. The new solution is a result of its valuable experience. The experts aim to use digital tools to plan better, safer and more robust projects.
The platform ensures a global real-time overview for multinational companies and their project sites. But the technology is also attractive to smaller businesses, as it can be configured and customized flexibly without much programming. DEKRA developed the DEKRA Safety Platform based on technology from the Israeli start-up GOARC.
