DRA Global believes safety starts with actively caring for people and from this base, behaviours change, people feel responsible for each other and safe working practices flourish. This methodology is called People-Based Safety®.

People-Based Safety® is an innovative approach that applies the principles of behaviour and person-based psychology, focusing on safe behaviours to transform employees’ thoughts and attitudes about the way they work. People-Based Safety® enhances regulatory compliance through empowerment, ownership, trust and encourages individuals to look out for their fellow co-workers’ safety to reinforce safe behaviours and to create a Total Safety Culture.

Through this unique methodology and principles entrenched in the DRA Global HSE approach, the team has achieved remarkable performance statistics. This is owed not only to employees of the organisation but also to the clients and contractors who embrace the same way of working. Through empowerment, ownership and trust, DRA Global undertakes to deliver projects, of any size, with “zero harm” and actively inspire all stakeholders to adopt sound management systems.


Our approach is distinguished by a few key principles:

  • Voluntary acceptance of health and safety as an essential behavioural norm
  • Responsibility for self and others, individually we lead change and collectively we achieve results
  • Reward progress and correct mistakes through guidance and training
  • Proactive approach to all daily tasks mitigates risk and adequately equips individuals with sufficient knowledge to react when necessary and predict consequences of actions


DRA Global continuously finds new ways to improve on past results. In an effort to develop new ideas and ways of thinking, to share experiences and findings, DRA has developed a health, safety and environmental (HSE) management system that, while custom-made for our operations, is aligned with the international standards of OHSAS 18001.

DRA Global is ISO9001 certified and is committed to providing the highest level of client support. From concept to commissioning and through operational excellence, the organisation improves on processes to consistently meet target objectives and achieve tangible results.
