In-cab safety technology can be a major benefit in improving fleet safety. While it can encourage better communication and also provide a return on investment for fleets, these technologies also bring new challenges in driver/manager relationships. In this session, learn how fleets can seamlessly adopt in-cab technology and handle the emotional hurdles and skepticism from drivers that may arise as a result.
Anthem Propane delivers, repairs and services propane tanks in a variety of sizes to residential and commercial customers throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. A SmartDrive customer since 2014, Anthem Propane initially adopted the video-based safety solution to improve fleet safety and enhance driver performance. Results experienced to date include an 87 percent reduction in stopping observations, 45 percent increase in seatbelt usage, and 23 percent reduction in distracted or unsafe driving observations, resulting in a 45 percent reduction in Anthem’s overall safety score.
Kahn will also be available for press briefings at the conference. He can speak to the benefits of video-based safety solutions in exonerating drivers in collisions when they are not at fault and delivering personalized driver coaching to reduce risk and ensure high safety standards.
