A word from Johan Gerber

Director – DEKRA Industrial RSA

Dear valued visitor to this page, welcome to one of the ‘safest’ pages on the internet!

In South Africa, DEKRA Industrial RSA has two main divisions, DEKRA Industrial and DEKRA Institute of Learning.

DEKRA INDUSTRIAL

DEKRA Industrial is the operations side of the business, ensuring that deployment of NDT and inspection equipment and resources is optimised – locally, nationally and globally – and always with safety and client service top-of-mind. Irrespective of where resources are required, DEKRA Industrial ensures the best solution is found for our clients, deploying equipment and personnel strategically and ensuring the best optimisation of assets.

DEKRA Industrial is the provider of professional and innovative services in the fields of:

  • Inspection Services (QA and QC excluding third party inspections, DEKRA is not an Authorised Inspection Authority (AIA) we contract this service out)
  • Non-Destructive Testing
  • Material Testing

  • Advanced NDT
  • Asset Integrity Services and
  • Industry Training (Institute of Learning)

In line with our parent company’s global vision 2025, DEKRA Industrial seeks to be ‘the global partner for a safe world’, achieving this in all the key areas of life: at work, at home and in our surrounding communities, through our extensive expertise, wide-ranging services and passionate commitment. We are furthermore supported by team of people who are dedicated to ensuring long-term safety, quality and environmental protection.

  • With 98 years in the industry through its global parent company, DEKRA Industrial SA has established a formidable reputation as a leader in inspection services, non-destructive testing (NDT), material testing, laboratory services, Advanced NDT, and asset integrity services, and offers industry training through DEKRA Institute of Learning. With a Group presence in more than 50 countries on five continents, DEKRA Industrial RSA provides safety solutions across a multitude of industries, including power generation, oil and gas, construction, petrochemical, manufacturing, fabrication, pulp and paper, rail, mining, steel industry and foundries, within South Africa and pan-Africa.
  • DEKRA Industrial SA is a holistic services provider of NDT inspection, corrosion control with rope access and lifting. The company has 51 percent black woman ownership and has achieved a current overall Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) status of Level 1.
  • The company is also RD 0034-compliant, a nuclear safety compliance standard and is one of the few NDT companies locally to hold the ISO 45001:2018 certification; as well as the prestigious  DNV certification giving DEKRA Industrial access to many inspection opportunities in the maritime sector.
  • Showcasing its ongoing commitment to safety, which runs like a ‘golden thread’ throughout the company, Dekra Industrial SA achieved its 8th annual NOSCAR safety award in 2022 – the highest safety honour which can be bestowed on a business by the National Occupational Safety Association (NOSA).

While we will continue to offer our conventional NDT services, we aim going forward to boost our Advanced NDT offering with a view not only to expanding our local footprint but our cross-border, pan-African one too. We will also continue to look for innovative opportunities where our Advanced NDT and Inspection services, facilitated and optimised by software intelligence – such as windfarm, solar and drone inspections – can be applied.

DEKRA INSTITUTE OF LEARNING (IOL)

It is the vision of Dekra IOL to bring affordable, quality education to adults who have not been exposed to such opportunities previously; and in so doing, we set out to help them in furthering their skills and therefore their careers. Today, employers are looking for employees with real occupational-based skills. It is important for the adult learners to be able to implement their learning into their daily work. In this way, we aim to play a strategic role  in closing the skills – and employment – gap in South Africa, thereby benefitting the economy as a whole.

The Dekra Institute of Learning (IOL) is QCTO-accredited and delivers online learning across all industries, in both public and private sectors, with training pitched to all levels of competency, focusing on HSE, ISO and CPD-aligned courses. Classroom-based and distance learning are also available.

Please contact any one of our experts for further information and enquiries.

Warm regards
Johan
