Guidance report to save fleets money, now available

MiX Telematics is pleased to announce the launch of a new guidance report from Brake – a road safety charity that we are proud to sponsor. The report is aimed at helping Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) improve the safety of staff who drive for work, to prevent crashes and cut costs.

Managing road risk can have a big impact on SMEs' bottom lines: from avoiding minor bumps and scrapes to reducing insurance premiums and preventing the major fallout and reputational damage of a serious crash. Road safety at work also has a huge human impact as driving for work accounts for around 30% of workplace deaths each year. Every one of those deaths has a devastating effect on families and communities and, for every death, there are many more life-changing and debilitating serious injuries.

Brake's guidance report outlines how fleet safety can save money, meet legal and moral responsibilities, and protect communities.

Lara Churton-Hughes, Head of Sales and Marketing Australasia at MiX Telematics says: "The yearly economic cost of road crashes across Australia alone is huge and estimated at around $27 billion. When you consider that fleet drivers are 50% more likely to be involved in a crash*, more needs to be done to ensure their safety."

At MiX Telematics we're passionate about making sure drivers get home to their families each night, which is why we develop innovative fleet management, driver safety and vehicle tracking solutions that have a strong focus on safety. This guidance report will be hugely beneficial to fleets, both large and small.
