Telematics key as Bibby Distribution cuts total incident rate by one-third

Bibby Distribution has invested £1m in in-cab cameras

Bibby Distribution has cut its total accident rate by 30% since launching its Road to Zero Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) strategy four years ago.

The strategy aims for zero harm, zero waste and zero environmental impact across its operations.

Andrew Mawson, head of SHEQ at Bibby Distribution, said: “We’ve always had a reputation for safe working practices, and we’re keen to push that even further with our Road to Zero strategy.

“The results speak for themselves and we are grateful to all of our staff who are putting safety first across our business.”

The company says its success with driver safety can be attributed to targeted training using data derived from its full-fleet telematics systems, as well as the £1 million installation of in-cab cameras across its entire fleet.

Bibby Distribution also holds an annual, dedicated health and safety conference to share best practice across the business.

Since 2015, the 3PL has also reduced RIDDORs (reporting of injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrence regulations) by 60% and overall lost time accidents by 37%.

The company’s success has been recognised with three gold awards from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents in the past two years for Fleet Safety and Occupational Safety.

It was awarded a merit at the 2018 International Safety Awards and is also a member of the British Safety Council – last month receiving a third consecutive merit award from the organisation.
