LEADING Australian fleet management company Securatrak delivers turnkey GPS asset, fleet and personal tracking systems to mining companies throughout Australia.
The need for driver safety in the resources sector is emphasised by the often inhospitable locations, harsh terrains and vast distances travelled.
Securatrak’s solutions are at the forefront of providing occupational health and safety-based systems to increase driver performance, safe driving practice and remote worker safety.
GPS tracking can help reduce a company’s operating costs by identifying and managing issues such as inefficient routes, vehicle abuse, poor driving practices, late starts and unauthorised utilisation.
As the exclusive distributor for partner Geotab, Securatrak provides unparalleled local expertise and support coupled with proven technology developed by a global organisation.
The company’s clients include resource heavyweights such as Santos, freight forwarders, car rental companies and equipment hire organisations.
Another essential part of organisational occupational health and safety for the mining and resource industry is journey management planning. Traditionally, employees make contact at departure and arrival, with little or no contact for the duration of the journey. Should an incident occur, the exact location of the driver and the possible nature of the event would be unknown. Securatrak’s journey management centre provides businesses with a professional way to record and manage journey plans, tailored to suit specific requirements.
Utilising the latest GPS technology, its in-vehicle monitoring systems track a company’s workforce, ensuring their progress matches up with expected travel schedules.
The company’s staff can log journey itineraries, vehicle details, driver details, departure time and location, travel duration and arrival time.
If duress notifications and sensor warnings are activated or a non-arrival is logged, the team can immediately raise the alarm and implement appropriate procedures.
Securatrak enables companies to be smart and effectively control their vehicle fleet, enabling employees to make informed decisions when driving, helping reduce the cost and risks linked to travelling in remote areas.
