EXTENDED ABSTRACT: By 2019 it is expected that over 8.9 million European commercial vehicles will be fitted with invehicle monitoring systems (IVMS). The usual model for IVMS use within organisations is that it is programmed to measure critical safe driving metrics and providing regular feedback on how staff are driving and what they need to improve on. MiX Telematics has started working with clients on an expanded driver improvement model that focusses on four key areas that influence driver behaviour within an organisation: the employee, the employee’s team mates, the employee’s supervisor and employer’s organisational culture. This expanded model has resulted in our clients achieving a more sustainable safe driving culture.
