Through its human factors engineering, DEKRA provides necessary emphasis and attention to the suitability of personnel with the tasks at hand, thereby enhancing efficiency and productivity.
Human factors are increasingly being recognised as a significant risk management concern. As systems in general become more reliable, better-understood and controlled human factors are rising in relative importance. Through its human factors capability, DEKRA has provided necessary emphasis and attention to the suitability of personnel to the tasks at hand and the resulting outcomes.
Behaviour Based Safety
Behavioural Safety provides with a way of reducing lost-time injuries, through the analysis of your current environment, and the implementation of proven performance management methods. In other words, Behavioral Safety is the systematic application of psychological research on human behavior to the problems of safety in the workplace.
Reducing the occurrence of accidents is a key goal in achieving commercial and technical objectives at a facility. However, accidents inevitably still do occur and must be investigated to ascertain their causes and contributory factors. DEKRA's specialist capability in this field provides the mechanism and mediums to identify key problem areas within the operation and to allow mitigation strategies to be formulated to improve personal safety.
Ergonomics is now an established discipline which breaks down the barriers between human skills, machines and the surrounding work environment. Recent studies in the field show a distinct increase in safety, quality and productivity; due to ergonomically improved work environment. DEKRA's ergonomics capability involves the utilization of experienced personnel to understand interactions among humans and other work elements of a system, and thereby apply theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.
