Our Approach

By imparting and embedding effective coaching skills in your organisation, we can change the safety behaviours and decision making of your team and deliver a measured increase in care for your people, plant and processes. We do this by offering human-centered solutions such as “safety champions”, skilled at coaching and supporting the members of their team. We know that humans are at the heart of change, not processes and procedures. The key to our approach is understanding and managing human behaviour in a way that accommodates its inherent unpredictability and error.
DEKRA is a behavioral change and process safety consultancy. Working in collaboration with our clients, our approach is to influence the safety culture with the aim of 'making a difference for the better'. We deliver the skills, methods, and motivation to change leadership attitudes, behaviours and decision making among employees. Measurable, sustainable improvement of safety outcomes is our goal.
