Home Business Management Safety Another safety award for top NDT company

NON destructive testing (NDT) specialist Dekra Industrial SA has scooped another prestigious NOSCAR safety award. It has also retained its place in in the National Occupational Safety Association (NOSA) five-star system and the NOSA integrated five star system during the period under review.

“Winning a renowned international safety award is one thing. However, to be the recipient of this award for seven consecutive years, is an achievement which speaks volumes about who we are and what we aspire to as a company,” said Health Safety and Environment Manager, Carina Kleinhans.

“The NOSCAR award is bestowed on companies which demonstrate the very highest standard in safety compliance; and Dekra Industrial is proud to be included in these ranks.”

Eligible companies are required to meet stringent criteria which must be maintained for a period of three years in order to qualify for the NOSCAR Award. These include a verification audit score of over 95% for period of review, a Disabling Injury Frequency Rate (DIFR) of less than 0.8%, as well as no fatal accidents, diagnoses of an irreversible occupational health case or major environmental incidents.

Categories that are audited annually include: leadership and worker participation; planning, support and operational; performance evaluation; improvement; safety; health; environmental; risk management; systems; compliance and effectiveness.

“The fact that we have achieved RD 0034-compliance (a nuclear safety compliance standard), and is also one of the few NDT companies locally to hold the ISO 45001 certification, is clear evidence of our ongoing quest for improvement,” Kleinhans said.
