Keeping track of fleet safety analytics

By Verizon Connect January 26, 2022

Big data can play a pivotal role for organizations and their fleets, especially when combined with data analysis to help streamline an array of business operations. Every day, fleets amass information around a number of vehicle and fleet-related aspects.

When this large volume of data is integrated into, and funneled through, a digital fleet management software platform with predictive analytics capabilities, it results in near real-time feedback and data-driven insights that help make vehicle and driver safety a top priority.

Organizations can leverage cloud-based platforms to collect, track, and analyze safety-related fleet data from a vehicle and its driver in near real time, and use it to generate reports that can help managers take action. Fleet managers can use these reports to establish benchmarks, coach driver behaviors and examine changes over time to positively impact safety and fleet operations.

Fleet managers can find cost savings by utilizing fleet tracking technology to 1:  

  • Monitor speeding, idling, harsh braking and other driver behaviors
  • Use advanced tools to accurately plan for capacity and reduce overtime
  • Analyze operations to improve routes, labor costs, asset utilization and downtime

Here are some of the specific reports that use telematics data that fleet managers and safety managers can use to help make safety a daily priority.

Reports that help with fleet safety analytics 

Safety 

Monitoring driver safety not only helps to promote a safe workplace, but it can also help reduce the likelihood of far more expensive incidents, like motor-vehicle accidents on the road. Use the following reports to have more informed coaching conversations with your drivers, help build a driver safety program or keep closer tabs on vehicle health metrics.

  • Speeding: See all the instances of any driver exceeding a customizable speeding threshold. These thresholds can provide reporting over a specific speed limit or for a given duration, which allows managers to focus on just those incidents that merit their attention and correct them accordingly.
  • Driver style: overview of any aggressive driving behavior, including a safety score ranking for each driver. See how drivers rank among their peers as a basis for measuring a safety program. You can both focus on drivers that need more coaching and identify and reward those with positive driving habits.
  • Vehicle maintenance: Review fleet maintenance records to understand how they relate to costs or budgeting. Help reduce costly, unexpected repair bills and keep vehicles on the road longer. Know which vehicles are out of commission for service at all times.

Compliance 

These critical reports provide a helping hand when managing compliance requirements. They can help keep drivers safe by keeping the fleet in good working order and by monitoring and tracking hours to help prevent them from driving longer than allowed.

  • Electronic Logging Device (ELD): ELD reporting provides a printout of your drivers’ daily logs for your records, including a graph and status breakdown. In addition to managing driving hours and routes, this report can also help managers and drivers prevent hours of service (HOS) violations.
  • Vehicle inspections: See the date, time, results and remarks for every vehicle inspection using a digital logbook. Use these reports to help maintain a healthy fleet of vehicles with regular and proactive maintenance. This helps stay a step ahead of costly repairs and downtime.
  • Violations: Quickly view when and what violations, such as HOS violations, have occurred within your fleet. These reports make it easy for drivers to review and track their driving time, so that they also know when it’s required for them to take a break.
