Securitas has partnered with driver safety and behaviour technology company GreenRoad o improve driver safety among its 11,000 employees.
The company says that, with vehicle collisions the number one cause of work-related deaths in the UK, it wants to reduce risks associated with driver behaviour – both for the welfare of its employees and other road users.
GreenRoad technology will allow Securitas to track the movements of its fleet, monitoring driver behaviour, such as harsh braking, cornering, lane handling, acceleration and speeding.
Each vehicle will be fitted with technology providing real-time data, cascaded to an online reporting and analytics platform. This will enable Securitas to track its entire fleet, while monitoring driver behaviour.
The company says that improvements in driver behaviour enhance the safety of its mobile employees, and has a significant impact on its environmental footprint by reducing CO2 emissions, helping to achieve targets for reduction of greenhouse gases whilst growing this valuable sector of the business.
“As a security provider, our dedication to safety extends beyond protecting clients through our specialist services,” said Yvonne Hinckley – Mobile Operations Manager at Securitas. “By partnering with GreenRoad, we are taking measurable steps to protect our employees and other road users. We look forward to having a positive impact on our community by improving driver safety.”
