DEKRA Organisational Reliability, a global partner for a safe world, announced today a three year partnership with Naftna industrija Srbije (NIS), Serbia’s largest multinational energy companies, to implement a new Health and Safety strategy based on cultural change.
DEKRA Organisational Reliability first began working with NIS in 2016 when they requested a Culture of Care Diagnostic® to assess their existing safety culture. The new, three year partnership will work to implement the recommendations from the 2016 Diagnostic. The scope of work includes DEKRA Leadership Workshops, Frontline Worker Engagement Workshops, onsite coaching and a governance team.
“We are extremely pleased to continue our working partnership with NIS over the next three years,” commented Derek Smith, Managing Director, DEKRA Organisational Reliability Ltd. “NIS has demonstrated through both the assessment work and the subsequent plan to improve safety culture through our training and workshops that their employees’ wellbeing is at the top of their priority list. Our team looks forward to seeing the positive changes that are in store for NIS from the leadership level down to the front lines.”
“Over the last few years we achieved a good level of HSE performance in NIS. The external assessment conducted by DEKRA provided us with an excellent understanding what areas of improvement we still have. To become best in class, we will, over the next three years, have a number of initiatives to improve the safety culture within our organisation. External support by experts from the oil business and best industry examples provided by DEKRA and a strong commitment of our management for improvement will support us in this endeavour.” says Ulrich Peball, Director HSE function NIS.
Work is commencing immediately and will take place at multiple locations in Serbia from drilling sites, to gas terminal, oil refinery, petrol stations and tank farms.
