Waste fleet safety largely dependent on reducing distraction risks
MONTREAL, CANADA (PRWEB) December 11, 2012
FleetMind Solutions, Inc., the award-winning technology leader for onboard fleet management solutions, today published its latest white paper that tackles issues related to driver distractions in waste collection vehicles. “Waste Fleet Safety: Reducing Driver Distractions” examines the common types of distractions, their impacts on fleet safety and how to minimize or eliminate their root causes.
“Driver distractions are a major contributor to vehicular accidents,” said Martin Demers, CEO of FleetMind. “When you consider the sheer volume of waste collection vehicles that drive on our streets every day - eliminating or seriously reducing the risk of distracting elements is of utmost importance. New fleet management technologies can vastly improve the driver experience to reduce these risks.”
“Waste Fleet Safety: Reducing Driver Distractions” examines the four distinct types of distractions and further identifies ways to address each of these for waste fleet drivers. It details how technology can reduce the copious requirements for driver intervention - such as unnecessary on-the-road paperwork, data entry, cell phone usage and texting - to vastly improve the driver experience.
