Fleet Management System
According to the Swedish Work Environment Authority the “truck is the machine that has caused the most reported occupational accidents”. For this reason, performing a risk analysis before incidents occur is extremely important in order to prevent accidents, as well as creating a better working environment. In AFS 2006:05, Swedish Work Environment Authority states that it is the employer that is responsible for the working environment and must take the necessary measures in order to prevent illness and accidents. With a collision sensor and personal login, together with our web-based cloud service, Cargolog Online, you can simplify the management of your working environment. Via Cargolog Online, you can see who, when and with what force a collision occurs. This makes it possible to implement measures and more importantly, reduce the number of accidents in order to reduce costs. Whether it concerns further training for your drivers, the repair of your facility, or other measures, you can analyse your data and work actively in order to prevent accidents before they happen. This is an effective tool to help you in your daily work.
The cloud service, Cargolog Online, gives access to information in order to:
- Identify collisions
- Report and follow-up incidents and collisions
- Restrict authorisation
- Optimise the operating hours
- Plan maintenance
- Take control of your repair costs
When a collision occurs that exceeds the alarm level, which you control individually for each vehicle, an alert is sent to those responsible at your company, indicating that an incident or collision has occurred. You can then see the vehicle involved in the incident, and it is up to you choose who will receive the mail. To see more detailed information, you can log in to our cloud service, Cargolog Online. Cargolog Online shows the force with which the incident occurred, as well as the time. If your vehicle is equipped with personal login, you can also see who was involved in the incident. All incidents and collisions are saved in Cargolog Online and you always have the option to go back and view all of the history concerning both vehicle and driver.
Report and follow-up incidents and collisions
As part of using Cargolog Online, you will have the option to report all incidents and save the information for further analysis. Vehicles that have personal login and warning signal installed, along with the collision sensor (which shows when the alarm level has been exceeded), allow the driver to log in to Cargolog Online to report the incident. When using the personal login, the driver can only see the incidents that are linked to the driver in question. The advantage is that the driver can turn off the warning signal and answer the questions connected to the report in order to describe the event immediately after it happens.
Restrict the authorisation
It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that personnel have sufficient knowledge to use trucks in the working environment. The Swedish Work Environment Authority conducts inspections where, among other things, they examine permits and the knowledge of truck drivers. Despite this, there are many people who still use trucks in their daily work, despite lacking the necessary training to do so. With personal login linked to your collision sensor, you can restrict the authorisation needed to start the vehicle, meaning that only permitted drivers with the correct level of training will have permission to use the truck.
In Cargolog Online, all vehicles are listed together along with the training level that is required in order to start the them. The drivers are entered with training and authorisation level and thereafter, the authorisation to start the vehicle can be sent. The system reviews these aspects every time the vehicle is started, which means you do not risk giving a driver authorisation to the wrong vehicle.
Optimise the operating hours
With integrated recording of the operating hours for your vehicles with personal login, you can analyse and optimise the number of vehicles in your company.
According to the Swedish Work Environment Authority’s regulation, AFS 2006:5, a truck must be inspected and maintained at intervals that are suitable for the operating conditions, as well as the manufacturer’s recommendations. A truck with shortcomings and damage that could affect the safety must not be used before the shortcomings are remedied or the damage repaired.
To attain a safe truck and truck management, you can set out a maintenance schedule for your trucks via Cargolog Online, which is adjusted to each individual truck through your personal login. You will receive reminders when it is time to carry out services and you have the ability to send an order from Cargolog Online directly to your service company. By allowing Cargolog Online to monitor time intervals and the operating hours on your truck, you can easily see when it is time for the next service. Whether it is a fork test, maintenance service, fire prevention inspection or another form of service, you define in Cargolog Online the type of service for each vehicle.
Take control of your repair costs
Save time and administration costs by allowing your drivers to report damage directly in Cargolog Online. When the driver has made a damage report, an internal mail is sent to your company containing information on the truck concerned and who submitted the damage report. Thereafter, the person responsible can send an order directly to your service company with an order number, the truck concerned and a specification of the damage report, as well as estimated repair date and when the vehicle is estimated to be back in production. Once the repair is completed and the truck is back in production, you can easily go back and check the costs for spare parts and labour, as well as how long it took before the repair was complete.
You will receive information about all repair costs, as well as which trucks are most vulnerable. You also see which trucks are in for repair and those that are waiting for repair. This gives you a simple overview of your trucks, where they are and which are available in production.
