New driving style rewards programme to promote safer driving across company’s fleet of hauliers
FOLLOWING the installation of the Teletrac Navman GPS reporting system in all vehicles within the company’s fleet, Aggregate Industries have launched this new recognition scheme, based on scorecards that reward safe driving behaviours and styles.
Each month, the top three drivers in each UK region will be announced and each quarter the top haulier will be named. There will also be annual awards, including Aggregate Industries Driver of the Year and Top Haulier of the Year. All award winners from across the year will receive prizes for their achievements.
Ben Young, head of road logistics at Aggregate Industries, commented: ‘Utilizing the Teletrac Navman technology now installed across the fleet, we are able to recognize and reward those drivers committed to safety and encourage everyone to achieve operational best practice.’
With safety as one of its top priorities, the company operates a robust theory and practical testing process when recruiting a new haulier, which includes requiring them to achieve a minimum of FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) Bronze accreditation.
Aggregate Industries say this new reward programme illustrates their commitment to not only recruit safe hauliers but to also ensure they operate safely throughout their careers.
