SUEZ Puts Driver Safety First
We put the safety of our drivers, customers and members of the public first and take a preventative approach to safety. That’s why SUEZ has introduced DriveCam™ across its fleet. Whether our drivers are travelling in vehicles on work sites or on public and private roads, DriveCam™ is helping to improve safety.
DriveCam™ aims to ensure our workforce operates our vehicles as safely as possible. The in-cab technology is designed to highlight safe driving and increases awareness of:
- the impact of distractions
- maintaining safe following distances
- reducing harsh accelerating
- seat belt safety
- reducing traffic violation
A camera is fitted to the inside of the driver’s cabin and when an event occurs, such as hard braking or swerving, the DriveCam™ will be triggered. The system will capture and upload 12 seconds of footage – eight seconds leading up to the incident and four seconds of video afterwards – to the data management centre located at DriveCam™ headquarters.
The footage is then reviewed to support coaching, education, feedback and training ensuring long-term improvements in driving behaviour across the company.
Since commencing the installation of DriveCam™ across SUEZ’s fleet, SUEZ has seen a 67 per cent reduction in collisions.
This holistic approach including awareness and coaching has shown to reduce costs associated with vehicle accidents, property damage and fuel usage.
