DEKRA Safety Web at A+A in Düsseldorf

It’s all about occupational safety: The multimedia instruction portal DEKRA Safety Web was presented to an interested public at the world’s biggest trade fair for work security and occupational safety. Highlight at the fair: Michael Peters from DGUV Test handed over the certification mark “Tested Blended Learning Program for occupational safety and health” to Wolfgang Reichelt, managing director of DEKRA Media GmbH, the developer of DEKRA Safety Web.

Thereby, the learning units “First Aid” and “Ladders and Steps” are now certified by DGUV Test – others are to follow. DGUV Test belongs to the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV), the umbrella organization of the German accident insurance institutions for the industrial and public sector. 

Especially companies with employees on different locations can benefit from web based instructions on occupational safety. Because of the shorter time exposure compared to classroom training, companies save costs for travelling, overnight stays and catering. Moreover, they don’t have to miss their employees’ manpower for an extended time. A cost-efficient licensing model further reduces the expenses.

Apart from the certificate handover, too, the joint booth by DEKRA Akademie and DEKRA Media attracted many visitors looking for information on the comprehensive training portfolio DEKRA Akademie offers in the field of occupational safety. “We received positive feedback and interesting input from the visitors“, says Wolfgang Reichelt. In accordance with one of A+A’s key subjects – psychological stress at the workplace – this topic will be covered by DEKRA Safety Web in the future.

DEKRA Safety Web offers high-quality instructions and legal certainty

The current portfolio contains subjects from fields such as workshop, industry, health, services and aviation. Customization according to the company’s wishes belongs to the range of services, as well as localization and translation in different languages.

DEKRA Safety Web offers not only high quality instructions, but – thanks to the recent certification by DGUV – also the legal certainty that is crucial to companies. This is ensured by an exhaustive reporting system and end-to-end documentation which enable the business owner to prove that he or she has fulfilled the obligation to provide instruction.

Every Web Based Training consists of texts, animated films and interactive graphics and is customizable. The printout of a certificate documents the successful participation in the training. Thereby, the following oral instruction can be held very short and be reduced to directions regarding the actual workplace.
