Why Chamberlin Roofing and Waterproofing was Ready for a Video-Based Safety Program

Founded in 1897, Chamberlin provides professional building services that include commercial roofing and sheet metal; waterproofing and caulking; and building and restoration services for projects ranging from the aviation industry to high-rise commercial buildings. The specialty contractor decided to explore video-based safety programs to protect brand reputation after experiencing a dramatic increase in collisions caused by its drivers’ distracted driving.

Why the SmartDrive® Program is the SmartChoice for Chamberlin Roofing and Waterproofing

During the pilot phase, it became immediately apparent that the SmartDrive program was the right fit and superior to other systems the company considered. Some providers deliver thousands of videos each month without specific data analysis, proving to be more of a burden than a help for managers. The SmartDrive fully managed service saves managers time by providing accurate and actionable insight, allowing them to focus on the risky drivers and their specific behaviors that threaten their safety and the company’s bottom line.

In addition to results achieved, Chamberlin is quick to note that the SmartDrive team was responsive and service-oriented, delivering the support the company needed to be successful.

“For companies that are serious about identifying adverse behaviors and coaching drivers to make it a safer environment for themselves and others on the road, along with reducing litigation, losses and reducing property damage, SmartDrive is, by far, the premier program.”

Reduction in Rear-End Collisions

Improvement in SmartDrive Safety Score

Reduction in Insurance Premiums

Drop in Fuel Costs

Maximizing the Value of Their Investment

The 96% improvement in Chamberlin’s safety score during the pilot program is reflective of significant progress made across 24 different risk areas—including speeding, distracted driving and following distance. The flexibility of the SmartDrive program allowed Chamberlin to prioritize these risks to align with the fleet’s operating profile and policies. As a result, Chamberlin saw exceptional results, including a 100% reduction in rear-end collisions, a 5% reduction in insurance premiums and 4% drop in fuel costs.


“Our selection of the SmartDrive program distinctly reinforces our top value, safety. The managed service allows us to narrow the bullseye, rather than take a shotgun approach. We can be very precise and focus our time and resources on individuals who are actually at risk.”
