An in-cab driver feedback solution has dramatically reduced driver risk for PN Daly Ltd, cutting at-fault collisions by 50%.
The company, a specialist in leakage detection, water efficiency and new utilities networks, installed Ctrack’s Driver Behaviour Indicator (DBI) in over 150 vans, used for a contract with a leading water company.
The technology, which complements its existing Ctrack fleet telematics system, is being used by PN Daly to actively monitor driver performance and make use of the ranking tool to identify areas of improvement.
As well as halving at-fault collisions, the solution has seen infringements per mile cut by almost 25%.
The driver performance monitoring provides a useful ranking tool to identify areas of improvement. Employees are placed in a green, yellow or red band based on their driving performance, with an overall score calculated to enable a simple ranking system.
In the six months following the adoption of DBI, the number of drivers in the best performing green band increased by 31.6%, while those in the highest risk red band reduced by 72.7%.
“DBI has given our road safety strategy added impetus by using real-time engagement to encourage responsible driving,” explained Nik Darby, contract manager at PN Daly. “It has helped us build on the upward trend we were already on and we are confident we have the telematics solution in place to achieve continuous improvement. The results are testament to this, with impressive safety improvements across the fleet of vans.”
