Masternaut gains Fleet Safety Conference Award

Balfour Beatty
Balfour Beatty & Masternaut partnership the Saftey Award
14 June, 2013

Leading European telematics provider gains Fleet Safety Partnership Award, in partnership with Balfour Beatty Fleet Services Masternaut has today announced that it has gained a Fleet Safety Partnership Award at the UK Fleet Safety Conference, in partnership with Balfour Beatty Fleet Services (BBFS). Organised by road safety charity Brake, the awards celebrate those working in the field of road risk management to improve safety and help reduce the number of road crashes involving at-work drivers.

Masternaut was awarded 'Highly Commended' for its work with Balfour Beatty Fleet Services, in the Fleet Safety Partnership category. Recognising a partnership which has delivered "the most outstanding results to improve fleet safety", the award was announced at a ceremony yesterday evening.

Balfour Beatty Fleet Services  (BBFS) partnered with Masternaut last year in order to bring it closer to its 'Zero Harm' goal, meaning zero fatalities, and zero accidents and injuries across all of the organisation's operating companies. As the Balfour Beatty fleet operator, BBFS operates the ninth largest fleet in the UK, supplying and managing over 10,000 cars, LCVs, LGVs and specialist commercial vehicles - and therefore required a solution which could support the diverse areas of its business.  

Steve Towe, European Managing Director of Masternaut said: "Improving fleet safety is fundamental in reducing the untenable rate of work-related accidents. Masternaut is leading the drive for corporate fleets to create a culture of responsibility, ensuring their employees are driving responsibly, with safe driving factored into training and reinforced with incentives. We are proud that this has been recognised by Brake".

The overall cost to Britain of work-related accidents is over £16 billion . Business drivers are twice as likely to crash as private motorists , and four in five motorists admit to driving over the speed limit .

Realised through better driving behaviour, Masternaut's technology and Driver Behaviour Products are proven to be a powerful fleet management tool that helps lower carbon footprint, reduce costs and realise safety obligations. BBFS' solution works using real-time data with the Masternaut vehicle tracking solution, and includes essential Duty of Care and Fuel Management functionality.
