Build your safety strategy for safety performance improvement
Dispersed workgroups. High-risk jobs. High-pressure essential services delivery.
Utility organizations face difficult challenges keeping people safe:
About 1 of 5 recordable incidents in the utility industry has the potential for serious injury or death
Nonfatal electrical injuries increased 34% in 2015, according to the most recent data
Motor vehicles and falls from height are the leading contributors to utility fatalities
Given their size and reach, and the unpredictable nature of the job, utility leaders need a comprehensive safety strategy that adapts to the unique challenges of the industry. DEKRA organizational safety solutions help utility leaders do just that, and achieve the results that matter: fewer injuries, improved reliability, saved lives, and better businesses.
