ISHN conducted an exclusive interview with Colin Duncan, CEO of DEKRA Insight, the consulting arm of DEKRA S.E., representing BST and Chilworth. Colin Duncan presented a talk at ASSE Safety 2014 (http://www.safety2014.org/ ) on “Making Safety Part of Your Corporate Strategy.”
Colin Duncan: “Safety has to be an integral part of the business or there will sooner or later be negative incidents.
It is absolutely essential to have a long-term view; to understand where safety performance is today, and understand that the safety processes are continually evolving and improving. It is learning what’s working, and embedding what is working in a disciplined way. Oftentimes that collective know-how is lost in organizations over time. So you need a structure to support what has been learned, what is working, and the long-term view.”
