Builders must accept their responsibility for safety by judging the contractors according to their understanding of safety. Contractors must be aware of their responsibility for the safety of staff, visitors and the construction and include the resulting cost in their calculations. Short project times and competitive pressure must not result in disregard for; or cutting down on safety issues.

Dräger assists builders and construction companies in developing effective and efficient safety measures. Individualized purchase, rental or leasing models help you in using your safety budget at an optimum. In addition, Dräger accepts responsibility for safety-related processes and offers a guarantee for the operational readiness of the safety equipment delivered.
