Can we boost safety using behavior?

To enhance safety in companies across different industries by leveraging DEKRA’s behavior-based solutions.

Safety is the result of careful work practices. Behavior-based programs have thus helped to boost safety for some time. DEKRA’s new Adaptive BBS™ solution helps to ensure effective behavior-based safety programs. “Our software combats organizational blind spots and revitalizes any behavior based safety program,” says Tim Boyer. In 2019, a team of experts from DEKRA SMS, DEKRA OSR, and the North America region was convened by the Consulting Service Division. Around 30 new Adaptive BBS clients were then won, which drove the growth of DEKRA’s proprietary behavior database. This, in turn, will help DEKRA to further improve its digital solutions.


As Adaptive BBS is cloud-based, automatic updates are ensured

To tackle the acute shortage of nursing professionals in Germany using international qualification initiatives.

After great success in Europe, DEKRA has deployed its Expert Migration program in other regions in the world. Nursing professionals are now being qualified with the program in Brazil and prepared for work in Germany. “With our service, we play an important part in alleviating the shortage of skilled staff in nursing occupations,” explains Colin Steadman. Up to now, DEKRA has qualified more than 2,000 foreign nursing professionals at its own schools in Serbia, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Ukraine, and found them positions at more than 70 clinics, rehabilitation centers, and care facilities across Germany.
