CARING FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES’ WELFARE
Tracking is not meant to about being Big Brother; it is about looking after your staff, your vehicles and your assets properly. It’s about meeting care of duty obligations and health & safety regulations.
But there are plenty of other benefits to using tracking devices in the workplace and beyond, including cost savings. An investment in a vehicle tracking solution, for instance, should reap a healthy return in investment as a result of better driving behaviour and decreased wear and tear.
With these savings in mind, vehicle tracking devices are favoured by fleet managers who would like to see their monthly fuel bill drop, as well as their insurance premium.
The same devices can be used to track plant machinery that is often left unattended overnight or to keep tabs on goods in transit.
Compelling court evidence
Video is also being used to provide compelling court evidence in road traffic collisions to again protect your employees and your business in the event of a dispute.
Lastly, it is important to ensure your employees who work alone are safe too. They may not be in a car, van, etc. so vehicle tracking will not be appropriate but there are smartphone and two-way radio solutions that can help them alert you when they are in danger or injured, and for you to quickly locate them in these circumstances.
Tracking is not about spying on you staff; it’s about caring for you employees’ welfare.
