Fleets are being encouraged to look at their data and use it effectively to target interventions that reduce road risk at a forthcoming webinar organised by Brake, the road safety charity, and sponsored by Inseego.

Effective use of data is an essential part of any fleet safety programme, from proactively using it to identify prevention measures, to reactively analysing incidents. Organisations may receive data from numerous sources, whether from telematics systems, vehicle monitoring, driver and manager reporting of incidents and near misses, and/or other systems, but not only is it important to collect the data, it’s also vital that it is used effectively in order to help reduce road risk.

Using data effectively is the next in a series of webinars run through Brake’s Global Fleet Champions scheme, which shares best practice information and resources for addressing road risk. Attendance at the webinar is free, and it is open to health & safety staff, fleet managers, senior management, and anyone else with responsibility for at-work drivers at their organisation.

Analysis and action: using data effectively 

Thursday 24 November, 2pm – 3pm NZDT 

This webinar will discuss:

  • how to work with your suppliers to ensure you get the data you need
  • effective analysis of data and trends to identify risks and prevention measures to mitigate them
  • latest developments in data insights
  • examples of how organisations use data to best effect

Caroline Perry, Brake’s NZ director, said: “Fleets often have access to significant amounts of data from multiple sources, and it can be challenging to analyse and utilise it effectively to target interventions and reduce risk. This webinar will present some key information on how to get the best from your data, and the latest developments in data insights, to help fleets mitigate risks and improve safety.”

Jim McKinlay, Managing Director for Inseego in Australia and New Zealand said: “With the top causes of road crashes across the globe including distracted drivers, speeding and fatigue, it is critical to get to the root cause of those problems, so businesses can respond effectively and take preventative action.

“In today’s environment, we’re surrounded by data, but it can be overwhelming, difficult to manage and time consuming. Inseego partners with customers to make things quicker and easier by avoiding these data hurdles and providing valuable fleet insights, so instead businesses can focus on solving for these root problems and get to outcomes such as improved safety and reduced costs.”

About Brake

Brake is an international road safety charity. Its New Zealand division promotes road safety and campaigns against the carnage on New Zealand roads. It is also fundraising to improve support for families bereaved and injured in road crashes. To support Brake, go to www.brake.org.nz. Support books for children and adults bereaved in road crashes are available for free to families by contacting Brake on [email protected] or 021 407 953.

 Road crashes are not accidents; they are devastating and preventable events, not chance mishaps. Calling them accidents undermines work to make roads safer and can cause insult to families whose lives have been torn apart by needless casualties.
