Leadership in fleet safety
The Group Board of Directors is accountable for all HSE&Q issues including Occupational Road Risk. Moreover, the joint owners and Chairmen of the Group Kevin and Dermot Clancy are personally committed to the effective delivery and continual improvement of the Group’s Fleet Safety Management profile.
In terms of Fleet Safety Management & Compliance, we have a hierarchical umbrella of corporate governance and accountability ranging from a strategic level, a tactical level, and an operational level ensuring communication on key performance indicators is delivered effectively and efficiently.
The Board of Directors was responsible for the creation of the Fleet Safety Management & Compliance team. In addition, Colin Knight, Head of Fleet Safety, reports directly to Board member Bernie Stack who is Director of Plant, Transport and Traffic Management. Mr Stack is fully committed to continually improving fleet safety whilst driving down operating costs across the Clancy Group.
The monthly Fleet Safety Management and Compliance Business Review meeting has a direct reporting line into the Board of Directors and is chaired by the Head of Fleet Safety Management and Compliance, Colin Knight. This forum provides the space where all tactical decisions relating to fleet safety, fleet costs and fleet compliance are agreed upon and planned
To provide a framework for our Fleet Safety Management activities, we have firmly embedded the GDE Matrix (Goals for Driver Education) and the HSE principles of the PDCA Cycle of continuous improvement into Fleet Safety Management and this is delivered throughout the group by Regional Transport and Driver Safety Managers.
Collecting, analysing and acting on data
Over the Past 2 years we have invested significantly in fleet safety technology and recruited highly qualified fleet safety professionals to assist us with our 2020 vision and to defend three main areas of our operations:
- Our drivers and other road users
- Our Brand
- The financial implications of neglected fleet safety management
To that end, we aim to provide a systematic, methodical and professional approach to managing our road risk by ensuring we implement data-driven driver safety interventions.
We use a third party online driver risk management system which includes an on-line driving licence check and risk assessment. We also conduct drug and alcohol screening for all new drivers as well as conducting D&A tests after road traffic collisions.
We have fitted forward facing cameras in company cars and a selection of commercial vehicles. Telematics/black box technology is fitted to every company owned vehicle within the fleet. We have employed a full time Fleet Safety Data Performance Analyst, who collects, collates and distributes data from all of our systems allowing the Fleet Safety Management & Compliance team to create data driven performance improvement KPI’s and training interventions to our wider business.
Data from the following sources is analysed:
- On Line Driving Licence Check and Risk Assessment Management Tool
- Tracker Black Box Driver Style
- Forward Facing Cameras
- AVIVA Insurance Claims History
- Maintenance and Defect Records
- Fuel Card Data
By using a combination of claims statistics and utilising our in-vehicle forward facing cameras we produce our own company branded data-driven video toolbox talks based on collision trends.
The data is then analysed before being translated firstly into strategy and subsequently into accountability and ownership by local line managers. This provides them with the insights and skills to manage their fleet properly and understand the influence they have on the behaviour of their drivers and the general safety culture.
Our data tells us that only 10-20% of our drivers fall into the critically high risk rating and we have therefore developed behavioural based coaching programmes for both drivers and their managers.
The dedicated Fleet Safety Management & Compliance team support the wider business in the implementation of our fleet and driver safety policies and risk assessment activities and these are influenced by the output from Monthly Regional Fleet Safety Performance Data Dashboards. In addition the team works very closely with external stakeholders to ensure all third party fleet data is turned into performance measures.
The Monthly Dashboards contain the following feet safety KPI’s
- Collision frequencies, types, severity and costs to the business
- Redzone drivers based on telemetry and camera data (speeding and other driver style)
- Fuel usage, containing, costs, CO2, idling, over capacity filling, out of hours driving
- Compliance to On-line Risk Management Portal
- OCRS scores
- Driving fines and offences
- Tyre transactions and wear
- Van weight & compliance
