All things fleet tracking – industry news and best practices

4 Ways Fleet Tracking Can Help Businesses Improve Driver Safety

Posted on 04/12/2013 by AKilgore   |  0 Comments

The most dangerous part of the day for any employee isn’t the time spent operating machinery or servicing equipment – it’s time spent behind the wheel of a vehicle. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of fatalities in the workplace – more than fires, explosions, falls, trips and equipment incidents combined.

So, how can businesses ensure that their drivers are following the rules of the road and practicing safe driving habits? Fleet tracking. Here are 4 ways that fleet tracking can help businesses and their employees drive safely:

1.  Satellite Tracking vs. Cell-Based
According to the National Safety Council, 24% of all motor vehicle crashes involve cell phone use.  When it comes to selecting a fleet tracking solution, a satellite-based tracking system is the safest bet. Why? Because it doesn’t require a business to use cell phones in order to track their fleet, keeping the drivers eyes on the road and off their phone.

2. Driver Behavior 
Fleet tracking solutions often offer driver safety reports which allow businesses to identify aggressive driving behaviors such as speeding, harsh breaking, harsh acceleration and sudden cornering and rank their drivers based on their performance on these key behaviors. A report like this helps companies proactively ensure that driver and fleet safety is a top priority.

3. Tracking & Breadcrumb Trails
Basic tracking and breadcrumb trails are two tools that can be used to reduce distracted driving by allowing businesses to know where their fleet is and where it’s going. Breadcrumb trails replay a vehicles daily routes so businesses can see exactly where they’ve been, cutting down on the amount of side trips and keeping employees as productive as possible.

4. Utilizing Garmin Integration
Integrating with a Garmin® device minimizes driver distraction and reduces the chances of a driver being lost. A Garmin device provides voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions, so your drivers never have to mess around with paper maps or poor cell phone mapping apps.

5. Put Down the Phone
Did you know that a driver distracted by a cell phone is 23x more likely to get into an accident? Distracted driving technology allows businesses the option to disable mobile devices while a vehicle is in motion, allowing drivers to wholly concentrate on the task at hand, increasing driver safety.
