Intelligent Telematics SureCam connected vehicle cameras have been installed in more than 100 Stericycle commercial vehicles in “joined-up approach” to risk.
The company has implemented the devices as part of a new approach to risk management, fuel reduction, wear and tear and insurance costs.
The cameras will be used to support its claims management process, which has been developed to achieve increased brand protection and reduce the financial impact of motor insurance claims.
Intelligent Telematics partnership and marketing director, Sam Footer, said: “Our proven connected vehicle cameras have been selected by Stericycle as part of its commitment to instil an appropriate safety culture and support an effective insurance claims management process.”
The SureCam connected vehicle cameras will provide immediate access to HD video of any road collision, near miss or harsh driving event.
The footage will be used to empower line managers to identify areas of ongoing concern and engage directly with drivers, with any recurring issues escalated to an internal team of assessors.
In addition, a league table will rank the best and worst performing drivers as part of Stericycle’s targeted training programme.
Stericycle’s group head of fleet, Lee Jackson, said: “We are already using a vehicle tracking system for driver behaviour monitoring, but the connected cameras will provide added insight into the circumstances of any incident, enabling us to better understand driver performance and the risks facing our fleet.
“We wanted to take a structured approach to ensure we are best placed to defend claims or quickly respond where a claim needs to be settled.
“Working closely with our external partners Sopp+Sopp and Plexus Law, we will use the connected cameras to take advantage of First Notification of Loss and have better control over our claims management process.”
