Context. It’s essential when it comes to driver training and increasing your fleet’s operational safety. Telematics data goes a long way in detailing what happened out on the road, but today’s video telematics systems can actually show you what happened.
That hard-braking notification you have in your inbox? That saved not only your equipment but lives on the road because your driver acted accordingly. If you’re not looking into the data and taking the notification at face value, you might only be seeing half the story.
On the flip-side, you don’t want to alienate drivers by implementing a fleet-wide, in-cab camera solution without communicating the need for it. I connected with Jason Palmer, chief operating officer, SmartDrive, to talk best practices for implementing a telematics video platform and how to build a driver safety training program around what you’ll see. Watch the video above for all of the insight.
