Free forum to cover telematics’ role in fleet safety

Taking place on Thursday 26th June from 9.30am to 1pm, the event is being organised by Cardinus Risk Management to provide valuable advice and information for anybody with responsibility for at-work drivers and managing vehicle fleet risk. 

In particular the forum will discuss telematics and the way new technological developments have addressed the earlier challenges associated with telematics. 

Jon Abbott, director at Cardinus Risk Management, said: ‘There are real cost savings to be achieved through effective use of relevant telemetry data in terms of fuel usage, collision reduction and maintenance costs, not to mention the opportunity to reduce insurance premiums.

‘Telemetry is the way forward in supporting fleet risk management, as this forum will reveal. Presenting all this expertise and information in a half-day forum means an extremely productive morning, with refreshments available throughout. The whole forum will provide valuable practical advice on how to make vehicle telematics work for your fleet and secure road safety and financial benefits. We have some outstanding expert speakers.’

Included within the line-up will be a presentation by Jeremy Guscott and Colin Hartley, both directors and co-founders at JGCH Consulting, a provider of independent advice to commercial fleet operators throughout the UK. The pair will present a short history of vehicle telemetry before describing the industry today and listing the key players. They will then look at where the industry is heading, suggesting some of the new opportunities that telematics might offer in the future before finishing off with a live data demonstration.

John Davidge, head of fleet technical, Cardinus Risk Management, will explain why taking positive and proactive steps to manage your fleet’s driving risk is an essential part of your health and safety at work programme if you are to control costs and reduce insurance claims.

And John Dalziel, national fleet and logistics manager at QubeGB, will talk about the firm’s experiences of introducing telematics into its 500-vehicle fleet, including the benefits to operational practices and improved work-related road safety. J

“Making telematics part of your fleet risk programme” will be held at 107 Leadenhall St, London EC3A 4AF. To register, call 020 7469 0200.
