Fleetmatics and the Fleet Safety Institute Co-Author Safety Whitepaper

As part of a mutu­al com­mit­ment to com­mer­cial fleet safe­ty, Fleet­mat­ics Group PLC (NYSE: FLTX), a lead­ing glob­al provider of soft­ware-as-a-ser­vice (SaaS)-based mobile work­force solu­tions for ser­vice-based busi­ness­es of all sizes, and Fleet Safe­ty Insti­tute, a leader in pro­vid­ing indus­try best prac­tices and ser­vices, recent­ly announced the avail­abil­i­ty of a co-authored white paper. The announce­ment comes in con­junc­tion with the Fleet Safe­ty Con­fer­ence that took place from July 22–23 at the Renais­sance Schaum­burg Con­ven­tion Cen­ter Hotel in Schaum­burg, IL.

The paper enti­tled, “Ensur­ing Fleet and Dri­ver Safe­ty: How Tech­nol­o­gy Helps Ser­vice Busi­ness­es Adhere to Reg­u­la­tions and Pro­tect Employ­ees,” is designed to help edu­cate com­mer­cial fleet-relat­ed busi­ness­es about com­mon safe­ty-relat­ed issues and how to use tech­nol­o­gy to address them.

“Every year, thou­sands of road fatal­i­ties are attrib­uted to com­mer­cial vehi­cles,” said Dale Willis, Direc­tor of Prod­uct Mar­ket­ing – Busi­ness Intel­li­gence, Fleet­mat­ics. “The first step in reduc­ing this num­ber and ensur­ing greater safe­ty for every­one on the road is for busi­ness­es to adopt and enforce greater fleet safe­ty mea­sures. Not only can this save lives, but there are also busi­ness ben­e­fits asso­ci­at­ed with a safer fleet that can help com­pa­nies achieve world class safe­ty stan­dards.”

The white paper out­lines the myr­i­ad impacts of com­mer­cial fleet-relat­ed acci­dents, as well as the path to safe­ty ini­tia­tives that can mit­i­gate var­i­ous types of oper­a­tional risks.

“Aggres­sive and fatigued dri­ving are just two of the key issues fleet oper­a­tors must address,” said J. Kimo Ket­ner, Vice Pres­i­dent, Fleet Safe­ty Insti­tute. “Advanced tech­nol­o­gy that, for one, allows for dri­ver-cen­tric ini­tia­tives, can be inte­gral to reign­ing in aggres­sive dri­ving habits and also help effi­cient­ly and cost effec­tive­ly address new Hours of Ser­vice reg­u­la­tions designed to com­bat fatigued dri­ving.”

The white paper was be dis­trib­uted at the afore­men­tioned Fleet Safe­ty Con­fer­ence and can also be found here: www.fleetmatics.com/ensuring-fleet-driver-safety-download.
