Webinar by Toll NQX talks about their approach to heavy vehicle safety
Leading road freight company Toll NQX shared its approach for industry players wishing to adopt similar safe driving practices.
Toll NQX General Manager and webinar host Greg Smith said he was pleased to share insights gained from Toll NQX’s use of telematics and cameras in its ongoing effort to prevent incidents and to protect drivers and the communities they travel through.
“At Toll NQX, safety is more than a priority, it’s a value,” Mr Smith said.
“As a leading road transport provider clocking up more than 33 million kilometres per year, safety is also a permanent goal. We’re always evaluating improvements to assist with incident prevention.
“In 2011 we set out to discover what more we could do. After installing in-vehicle camera systems in our linehaul fleet, we gained some valuable insights which have since changed the way we operate our fleet, manage risk and engage with our drivers and contractors.
“As a result of these changes and the implementation of other preventative measures, trucks are involved in fewer incidents.
“We’re pleased to share our knowledge and do our part to help make Australian roads safer for everyone.
“We also acknowledge and thank The National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) for offering this collaborative network for Australian organisations to build and implement effective road safety strategies in the workplace.”
