For project operator Vattenfall, employee health and safety are the main priority – during construction, commissioning, and operation. DEKRA is supporting the development of a safety-oriented corporate culture (Culture of Care) that includes implementing Vattenfall’s Oldegard program. This involves assessing the culture, followed by management and personnel development measures and subsequent coaching aimed at anchoring newly learned behaviors.
Ensuring employee safety is the focus of other projects as well. For example, DEKRA’s expertise has been called on in the permit planning process for the Gode Wind 3 project close to the island of Borkum, off the German coast. DEKRA has examined whether the constructor satisfies all fire protection requirements and regulations. Fire protection concepts and training are among the many services DEKRA provides for planning, constructing, and operating wind turbines and wind farms.
