a road safety charity that works with communities and organisations to prevent road deaths and injuries, has announced the shortlisted entries for their 2021 Fleet Safety Awards. These awards recognise organisations that have made a significant contribution to enhancing the safety of on-the-job drivers.
Stabilised Pavements of Australia (S.P.A.), a pavement construction, rehabilitation and maintenance solutions company, have been shortlisted in both the Fleet Safety Product and Company Driver Safety categories of the 2021 Fleet Safety Awards.
Stabilised Pavements approached Airco Auto Instruments, a MiX Telematics Channel Partner based in New South Wales, with the aim of implementing a telematics solution that would help monitor their driver hours to ensure compliance with chain of responsibility regulations around fatigue monitoring. They also wanted to put appropriate measures in place to improve overall fleet safety.
With the expertise of Airco Auto Instruments, they identified that MiX Telematics’ solution would most accurately meet the needs of their 180 vehicle fleet. Since starting to use the solution, Stabilised Pavements have seen significant safety improvements across their fleet. By monitoring risky driver behaviour, like harsh braking events and over speeding, they can now quickly and easily determine the distance travelled between each driving event’s occurrence.
The Brake Fleet Safety Awards 2021 winners will be announced on September 23, 2021.
