Trimble has added a driver safety score card to its FieldMaster mobile app.
The Driver Safety Scorecard enables organisations to mitigate road risk by providing remote workers with visibility into their driving performance. This allows drivers to make immediate adjustments to their driving behaviour.
"Keeping employees safe while out on the road is a priority for many businesses and implementing a corporate safety program is often a critical step in that process. The launch of our new Driver Safety Scorecard means businesses can implement these initiatives by using mobile technology that helps both the driver and the business identify risky driving behaviour," said John Cameron, general manager of Trimble's field service management division.
"Trimble technology already allows fleet managers to view individual safety scorecards. Adding a scorecard to our FieldMaster mobile apps puts that intelligence in the hands of the driver. This means they can make improvements to be a safer driver while the business can mitigate risk and reduce accidents."
"Identifying drivers who need coaching on road safety is the first step," said Cameron.
"Providing a tool that benchmarks their driving and provides advice on how they can improve their driving offers a more sustained approach than one-time training. With this approach, drivers may be more likely to think about safety on the road each and every day."
