Building A Proactive Safety Culture Within Organisations Through Innovative Technologies: DEKRA Insight Partners With Go-Arc To Deliver Safety Solutions
According to the Verdantix global survey of 382 EHS decision-makers, 35% of respondents perceive the use of technology as a ‘must have’ for successful EHS management, while over half of the respondents perceive the value in adopting technology but limit its use to where appropriate. DEKRA Insight, the 500-employee strong safety consulting arm of DEKRA, a 35,000-employee firm with over 90 years’ experience in the field of safety, has partnered with Go-Arc, an Israeli headquartered safety technology firm to develop safety solutions that combine safety expertise with Industry 4.0 technologies. The key focus of the partnership is to develop safety solutions based on the innovative Go-Arc safety technology platform.
Go-Arc technology uses smart algorithms to deliver real-time data driven insights which are proactive, preventive and predictive, to frontline workers as well as top-level executives. The platform is cloud-based and optimised for use on mobile devices so relevant and contextual information can be shared as well as reported promptly, thereby empowering and engaging the workforce to take proactive actions to minimise risks and occurrence of safety incidents. Integrating real-time data from connected devices such as sensors with EHS and operational data, along with the move to predictive analytics and machine learning is expected to deliver deeper insights that will improve not just operational efficiency but build a behaviour based safety culture within an organisation.
