As the global partner for a safe world, we are seeking and providing long-term support to outstanding ideas, initiatives, and processes that help make the world a safer place."
For the DEKRA Award, a panel of internal and external experts will identify best practice projects across the country that make a sustainable contribution to improving safety among all the applications based on a list of criteria that focus on effectiveness, simplicity, efficiency, innovation, sustainability, transferability, and acceptance.
