Dashboard cams and in-cab cameras are becoming increasingly more common among fleets. The facts all point to the same conclusion—vehicle cameras protect your drivers and your company in case of a traffic incident while encouraging safe driving. While this might seem obvious to a fleet manager, getting your drivers to buy into the importance of dash and in-cab cameras is sometimes challenging.
No one likes to feel like they’re being monitored while they work, especially veteran drivers who came up in the industry before the invention of in-cab cameras. As this technology becomes more and more ubiquitous, it is increasingly important to get every driver in your fleet on the same page when it comes to in-cab and dashboard cameras. No small task, we know, but thankfully, our friends at Transport Topics have some ideas to help you do just that.
As part of their ongoing webinar series, Transport Topics will be discussing in-cab cameras during their June 9th webinar titled “13 Steps to Get Drivers Onboard with In-Cab Cameras.” When it comes to driver buy-in, Transport Topics states that, “It’s about transparency, communication, incentive structures, feedback, and the right technology.” You can click the link above to sign up for this informative webinar.
If you aren’t familiar with Transport Topics webinars, you’re missing out. Their ongoing series has covered a number of topics in the past, including ways to improve inspector relationships, how companies can keep their CSA scores in check, and tips on how to prepare your fleet for adverse weather conditions, just to name a few. These webinars are excellent resources for safety-minded companies.
