KBC Health & Safety Partners with AlertDriving to Introduce Behavior-Based Driver Compliance Monitoring



TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AlertDriving today announced the launch of a strategic channel partnership with KBC Health & Safety, the first choice among businesses across Southern Africa to deliver customized, fully benchmarked Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) programmes. Now an AlertDriving ADvantage partner, KBC Health & Safety will gain enhanced channel support to help fleets coordinate safety and compliance through FleetDefenseSM, the worlds most extensive driver risk management platform.

South Africas Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHA), one of the worsts most comprehensive, still leaves millions of workers unprotected. The problem, workplace health and wellness experts say, is lack of enforcement: many businesses do not have standardized benchmarking to track compliance, so, the solutions that KBC Health & Safety develops for clientsfrom surface to undergroundall allow for a single standard. Of course, contractor risks vary widely among divisions and sites; KBC Health & Safety works with companies to define key safety benchmarks across a range of job responsibilities. Then, aligning these benchmarks to a common single standard, KBC Health & Safety provides systems to track compliance, such as Contractor PassportTM. A reciprocity system, it logs training requirements and relevant documentation onto individual PASSPORT cards, which employees present at safety checkpoints to enter job sites.

As CAT, BHP and Vodacom currently use the system, KBC Health & Safety, an AlertDriving partner, can now expand to monitor risk in fleets across Southern Africa.

FleetDefenseSM focuses on improving compliance through consistent, test-enhanced learning, explains Rob Martin, Vice President of Sales at AlertDriving. Since our training is localized for over 90% of the world, KBC Health & Safety can now support fleets SHE initiatives with objective, behavior-based tools to monitor complianceall from one location.
