The workplace extends far beyond the four walls of the office. The vehicles that make up an organisation’s fleet are often fraught with the most danger, with statistics showing that over two thirds of all workplace fatalities occur in or around a vehicle.
This presentation will share an interesting case study about New Zealand Racing Board’s journey with Fleet management, Work Health & Safety and Telematics.
In late 2015 the New Zealand Racing Board’s (NZRB) Health and Safety Committee made a recommendation to consider implementing vehicle GPS for assisting in improving safe driving behaviours for its fleet of 126 plus vehicles and 800 plus employees. High accident and damage rates and increasing vehicle infringements were seen as an indicator of poor driving behaviours, while a 360 bowtie analysis confirmed this risk as the highest priority for the NZRB.
Since 2016 the NZRB has undertaken a journey of engagement with its workers in implementing the use of GPS, driver education & training, improvements in vehicle selection, combined with a balance of positive driving behaviour re-enforcement and an approach of accountability where due which has led to significant improvements in all areas of fleet safety for its workers.
Hear how this journey was undertaken by NZRB, considerations they had to take into account, and the results they have achieved to date with their workers and driver behaviour including the financial benefits that have resulted.
