We can spec your vehicles with Geotab telematics devices, which monitor both the driver and the vehicle.
At the driver level, telematics systems help reduce dangerous driving behaviours such as speeding, abrupt acceleration/deceleration, or inconsistent seat belt use by sending drivers alerts when these behaviours are detected. You’ll have access to all driver behaviour data in your online portal.
Telematics also monitors the health of your vehicles and notifies you when a vehicle has a mechanical problem or needs essential service. This ensures no potential safety issue goes unnoticed.
If safety becomes an integral part of your company culture, it’s more likely your drivers will comply with safe driving policies.
We work with your organization’s leadership team to make safety a top priority, and then put incentives in place to encourage driver compliance. Using communication methods such as webinars, emails, printed materials, and more, we ensure your safety focus is well-communicated company wide.
Your fleet policy provides drivers with clear direction on your company’s safe driving expectations. If you already have a policy in place, we’ll review it and update it if required. If you don’t have a policy yet, we’ll create one for you based on fleet safety best practices.
We provide best practice recommendations to help you effectively communicate your policy to drivers, and they can access the policy at any time in our driver online portal.
When needed, our in-car training programs give drivers real-time experiences and feedback from a qualified trainer sitting right beside them.
Through our continual training model and our partnerships with dedicated provincial government-approved organizations, we can also schedule refresher driver safety training on a regular basis, and remedial training as needed to target specific problem areas.
Online driver training is cost-effective and convenient, providing drivers with instant feedback on their strengths and weaknesses.
Our program delivers online modules (in English and French) that cover key safety training topics, such as distracted driving, driver fatigue, sharing the road, and avoiding rear end collisions. Drivers then complete a comprehension quiz after each module to solidify their understanding. Our RiskCoach evaluation also auto-assigns modules based on each driver’s target areas for improvement./p>
Through our partner eDriving, companies enrolled in our driver safety program get access to the Mentor smartphone app, which monitors driver behaviours such as speeding, harsh turns, abrupt acceleration, deceleration, and more. This gives you essential data that shows how drivers are really behaving out on the roads.
The app also provides each driver with a daily score, which you can leverage for “gamification”, creating friendly competitions among drivers to see who can achieve the best score.
