Solution

With a strong presence in the mining and resources sector, the Parsons Brinckerhoff workforce regularly operates vehicles in remote areas. It has implemented the Fleet Complete’s Fleet Tracker device and a reporting software to monitor and manage its mobile workforce, regardless of where they are in Australia.

The Fleet Tracker device and support software are among the growing number of technology-based tools used by Parsons Brinckerhoff to reduce the risk of serious harm to its employees, partners and the public through its Zero Harm program.

"Safety is a critical part of all we do. In-vehicle monitoring has helped improve driver behaviour and helps us to further protect our most valuable asset – our people."

Benefits

“Since implementing the devices, we have seen a significant reduction in minor traffic offenses and accidents, and a considerable decrease in serious vehicle incidents,” Kim Sammut, General Manager
Safety, Health, Environment & Quality for the Australia-New Zealand region, says. “Investing in this technology also demonstrates to our staff that we are serious about their safety and helps us to
promote positive driving behaviour.”

The reporting software enables Parsons Brinckerhoff to monitor the performance of its drivers and vehicles in real time, providing insights into driver speed levels, risky habits such
as harsh braking and cornering, and identifying drivers who travel for long periods without rest breaks. The technology is intended to be used to help Parsons Brinckerhoff enhance the management of its fleet and identify areas to improve efficiencies, such as fuel use and service scheduling.

“Not only can Fleet Complete’s system track driver performance, it can also pinpoint the location of all our staff, which is important in the case of an accident. The Fleet Tracker has helped us improve our fleet-driver performance, and has had a positive impact on our overall safety and risk profile. The technology has given us greater visibility of our driver’s behaviour and allows us to work with personnel to rectify shortcomings where they become apparent.”
