Vehicle downtimeBalfour News digestBeattyThames WaterCar RecruitmentreviewsMinimising driver risk on the road to 'zero harm'By Gareth RobertsBalfour Beatty Utility Solutions is investing millions of pounds to ensure it has one of the safest fleets on the road.To help it achieve this aim, the company has deployed two innovative systems - RiskMaster and GreenRoad's G-unit monitoring device. Working in tandem, the solutions use a range of data to determine when a driver is high risk, allowing the company's insurance and risk team to inter-vene and prevent incidents occurring by sanctioning driver training."RiskMaster allows us to get an upfront picture of where the risks lay with our drivers," explained Brent Mitchell, director of operations support, Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions (BBUS)."But by using it in conjunction with the GreenRoad system - our 'near miss' tool - we've been able to clearly identify where the risks lay and how we can target them appropriately." Minimising driver risk is central to Balfour Beatty's group-wide Zero Harm initiative, which is designed to create an environment by 2012 where there is no risk of any kind to the public, zero risk of fatality or serious injury to the workforce and zero risk of long-term health damage.But Mitchell said there was no "silver bullet" to minimising risk. Instead, he divides driver risk into three distinct areas: the driver, vehicle and journey. He said: "We had a degree of knowledge about our drivers, but the risks were not completely visible and counter measures were not particularly well targeted. We needed a complete picture." The company was looking for a risk management system that would be capable of identifying a risk at an early enough stage to allow for a proactive intervention. It decided on RiskMaster because it combines DVLA licence checking and driver online Balfour Beatty's fleet deploys two innovative systems to help achieve safety targetUtilities Balfour Beatty Utility SolutionsContinues over'We've been able to clearly identify where the risks lay and how we can target them appropriately'Brent Mitchell, Balfour Beatty Utility SolutionsënBerlingo'sEnterpriserange,enjoythemanysupplementaryfeatures,including3frontseats,Smartnavsatellitenavigationwithstolenvehicletracking,airconditioning,Bluetooth®andrearparkingsensors.Plusapayloadupto851kgandloadspaceupto3.7m,34.1m3forthefullrange.Sorry,ËNBERLINGO.TRAVELBUSINESSCLASSFROMONLY£8,365*OR£42.69PERwEEk.?COmPlimEntarySmartnav*OffersapplytoqualifyingnewCitroënvehiclesordered®istered01/04/11-30/06/11forbusinessusersonly&excludeVAT.Anadvancerentalwillberequired.Allpricesshownaretheweeklyequivalentofthemonthlypaymentsof£192fortheCitroënBerlingoHDi75manualL1625Enterprise.+Contracthirerentalincludes:deliverytodealership,CitroënRoadsideAssistance,VehicleExciseDuty&GovernmentFirstRegistrationFee.Financesubjecttostatus.Aguaranteemayberequired.Over18sonly.Excessmileagechargesmayapplyiftheagreedannualmileageisexceeded.Contracthirerentalrateshavebeencalculatedwiththeappropriatemanufacturer'ssupportappliedtotheOTRprice.WrittenquotationsavailableonrequestfromBanquePSAFinanceUKbranchtradingasCitroënContractMotoring,QuadrantHouse,PrincessWay,RedhillRH11QA.CitroënContractMotoringreservetherighttoamendanyoftherentalsquotedwithoutnotice.Offerscorrectattimeofgoingtopress,subjecttostockavailabilityfromparticipatingDealers.FinanceoffersapplytoUKonly.
