The new digital industrial facility in Nanjing is more than 75,000 square meters in size, and will carry out research and development work as well as manufacture numerical control systems and servo motors. “When building the new production facility, key considerations were both Siemens’ high internal safety standards and a central HSE (Health, Safety & Environment) management system,” says Lothar Weihofen, Executive Vice President of the DEKRA Group, Head of the Consulting Service Division. With its comprehensive package comprising experts on site, a cloud solution, and a multinational yet still centralized method for running projects, DEKRA convinced SIEMENS of its expertise and won the contract.
In the implementation stage, it was necessary to make the local construction companies aware of the safety issues. Furthermore, DEKRA optimized communication processes and challenges through the use of different media and IT systems. In addition, we established a risk management process and ensured transparency regarding the current measures and progress.
