What is Decision-Driven Safety?

Safety COACH vs. Compliance Cop

KnowledgeVine Human Performance Improvement Training - Human Performance Third Party Safety Oversight

Decision-Driven Safety is the standard in third-party safety oversight. Our in-field coaches focus on identifying, addressing, and resolving safety issues so you don’t see the same errors repeated throughout your project.

We don’t just point out problems. We teach workers to recognize error-likely situations (Traps) and utilize human performance techniques (Tools) to make the right decisions leading to safer outcomes.

Who needs DDS?

Companies or individuals requiring a comprehensive team of professionals to provide oversight to large scale projects/operations or one behavioral safety professional delivering a few hours of assistance. We can help.

Lower RIR

Implementation of DDS has demonstrated a reduction in Recordable Incident Rate (RIR) for one of our major International Petrochemical clients from 14 incidents to ZERO over a 6 month period to period time frame.

Record Setting

In another example of successful Decision-Driven Safety program implementation, a 60-mile transmission project involving 20 contractors over a 2 year period had the lowest RIR in the history of the company.

Why is DDS Different?

KnowledgeVine’s Decision-Driven Safety (DDS) program eliminates the problems commonly associated with traditional compliance-based safety oversight.
