DESCRIPTION

Hanson Cement is in the process of fitting new cement tankers and curtainsiders with an array of video cameras for recording road conditions and events. Each vehicle is fitted with four cameras. One forward facing, one offside facing, one nearside facing and one rear facing. The output from each camera can be downloaded to a computer.

BENEFITS

The system vastly improves the company’s ability to review and analyse road risks and provides an invaluable training and coaching resource for the fleet. It also provides detailed realtime
information to review and address the root causes of incidents and to make evidence-based recommendations to further improve the fleet’s safety performance. In addition to providing highway information, the videos also assist in analysing risks or incidents at customer sites.

The video footage makes it much easier to communicate information to drivers in one-to-one training sessions and to share details of incidents and learning points with groups of drivers.
