Securitas has partnered with GreenRoad, driver safety and behaviour technology provider, to improve driver safety among its 11,000 employees.
Securitas wants to reduce risks associated with driver behaviour – both for the welfare of its employees and other road users.
GreenRoad technology will allow Securitas to track the movements of its fleet, monitoring driver behaviour, such as harsh braking, cornering, lane handling, acceleration and speeding.
Each vehicle will be fitted with technology providing real-time data, cascaded to an online reporting and analytics platform. Enabling Securitas to track its entire fleet, while monitoring driver behaviour.
Securitas’ mobile operations manager Yvonne Hinckley said: “As a security provider, our dedication to safety extends beyond protecting clients through our specialist services.
“By partnering with GreenRoad, we are taking measurable steps to protect our employees and other road users. We look forward to having a positive impact on our community by improving driver safety.”
GreenRoad’s regional lead John Gotbutt said: “If a company the size of Securitas UK can reduce incident rates and risky manoeuvres among its employee base, that can have a significant ripple effect on the safety of UK roads.
“These are the types of systematic safety improvements we hope to drive and it speaks volumes about Securitas UK’s culture of safety that they’ve chosen to make this investment.”
The technology is currently being installed in Securitas vehicles across the UK and will be fully implemented by October 2017.
