With the recent first ever conviction under the new corporate manslaughter laws, companies with fleets will need to become ever more vigilant over their duty of care towards drivers.
Leading UK based vehicle telematics provider Trakm8, offer a number of solutions to help achieve a company's duty of care requirements.
From simple vehicle time sheet reports to identifying who drives what vehicle, and promoting good driving styles to innovative alerts, Trakm8 offer a number of different ways to accomplish duty of care requirements.
John Watkins, Trakm8 Chief Executive, said: ‘Companies need to ensure they protect their employees from problems including excessive driving without a break, that they drive the right vehicle, and now also being proactive by promoting safe driving styles.’
Not only does promoting good driving style save money in fuel costs, but it also reduces dangerous driving that may cause accidents. The SWIFT web portal gives fleet managers all the tools they need to promote safe driving styles, and reduce the chances of their drivers having an accident.
Trakm8’s SWIFT system also offers many different driver ID options including RFID tags and dallas keys. Using driver ID ensures the correct people drive the correct vehicles, and how long they spend on the road.
