Telematics, a tool which is just another element in a safety management system
EXTENDED ABSTRACT: The use of telematics continues to grow throughout the Australian transportation industry as operators hope to take advantage of the operational and safety benefits of utilising these technologies.
This paper will explore how telematics should be treated as just another component in a safety management system and proper implementation is crucial in strengthening an organisations road safety culture. To do this, the National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) will apply a case study and consultative methodology with leading figures from the transport industry – including operators, drivers, insurers, technology providers and researchers.
NRSPP will explore the benefits of these technologies; requirements for effective implementation; and their place within an organisation’s overall operations and safety management system.
