Having delivered projects across six continents with varying climates, cultures and conditions, DRA Global is deeply aware of social, environmental and economic disparities across the globe. The organisation aspires to create sustainable development that creates value not only for clients but also for the communities in which it operates. As a responsible corporate citizen, DRA Global measures success not only by the bottom line but by its contributions to safety, conservation and economic improvement.
To make a long-term impact on economies and contribute to sustainable beneficial development, community members are properly informed of project processes and are included in many project phases through discussions and workshops.
By utilising local skills and training local talent, community members become an integral aspect of a project, contributing to its eventual success. This ultimately enhances livelihoods and contributes to the upliftment of communities through a positive skills legacy.
DRA Global has implemented hundreds of community upliftment initiatives through its integrated approach to project delivery and continues to invest in people through socio-economic development.
DRA Global strives to deliver all projects with “zero harm”. At the heart of its health and safety culture is the focussed management of safe behaviours. Attention is placed on designing safe working environments for everyone down to the frontline worker. This ethos highlights the health and safety of people and the communities in which the organisation operates as a priority in every action.
Every employee forms part of the organisation’s Health Safety and Environment (HSE) team, creating a total safety culture that results in exceptional HSE performance on projects of all sizes and complexities. Constant reinforcement reaffirms the adoption of safe practices. By listening to all stakeholders and learning from them, DRA Global aligns focus and perceptions across the board to develop a common understanding around HSE and implementing improvements that eliminate the likelihood of incident recurrence. Global HSE protocols govern all the organisation’s projects and site-specific HSE plans which are further developed to focus on targeted actions of the project team.
DRA Global has developed an HSE management system that, while tailored for the organisation’s operations, is aligned with international standards. The organisation engages with clients to share best practices in safe project delivery, and to promote the adoption of safe behaviours and thinking. Through this unique methodology, DRA Global continues to achieve industry leading HSE results.
