MiX Telematics Awarded Alcumus SafeContractor Accreditation

MiX Telematics has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor, for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.

MiX Telematics is proud to be an Alcumus SafeContractor accredited supplier and service provider

Newly accredited

Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading accreditation scheme which recognizes extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organizations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies. MiX Europe was tasked with achieving SafeContractor accreditation by two of our customers: Wincanton plc and G4S.

"Alcumus SafeContractor is a service provider who issues an annual survey that requires suppliers to meet their standards, fulfilling their legal obligation and ethical responsibilities in the areas of: Health and Safety, Environment, Corporate Social Responsibility, Finance, Equality, and Quality. We have found that more and more customers will only list you as a supplier if you have the associated accreditation.” – Chris Allen, Best Practice and Compliance Manager, MiX EU

MiX Telematics has been keeping fleets connected and protected since 1996.

Safety is a primary concern for fleet managers with the annual commercial fleet accident rate sitting at 20% and growing. Implementing fleet telematics technology can help you:

  • Identify unsafe driving behaviors that lead to accidents

  • Engage drivers to help them take control of their driving performance
  • Train drivers on how to reduce daily risk on the road
  • Develop customized driver safety policies to keep tabs on: Driver Behavior Monitoring, Real-Time Driver Coaching, Driver Engagement and Scoring, and Visual Evidence
  • Utilize real-time audible and visual alerts to correct risky driving behavior
  • Maintain vehicles appropriately to always keep them serviced and safe
  • Reduce the number of miles needed to travel and dispatch closest vehicles to job sites

The future is now

Our accreditation as a safe contractor is indicative of our daily commitment to excellence, and of our accountability to our partners and customers. So, what does the future hold for safety in fleet telematics?

“The future of commercial vehicle telematics lies in successful OEM integrations,” says Charles Tasker, Chief Operating Officer at MiX Telematics. “MiX is rapidly accelerating working with leading vehicle OEMs to ensure clients can easily access rich data needed to optimize fleet and driver safety.” Whilst OEM telematics won’t replace all telematics hardware capabilities, there is an increasing demand for telematics software that’s augmented by additional capabilities and robust data analytics.

Informed by our award-winning successes and with one eye on the future, MiX continues to develop innovative new technologies which put driver and fleet safety front and center. For more information on any of our current products and solutions, please contact us.
