Electrac NI was contacted by McGrady Insurance and tasked with assisting MacNabb Waste Management with improving the safety of its fleet of HGVs.
Managing Director, Fintan McGrady had complete confidence in selecting Electrac NI to complete an audit the McNabb Waste fleet, having worked closely on other large fleet projects previously.
Electrac NI made a series of recommendations to MacNabb Waste including the supply and fit of a comprehensive camera solution that was specifically selected to suit the harsh operating environments of the waste industry. The solution was also in keeping with the client’s budget and the installation process was scheduled to avoid having any affect the core working time of each truck.
A total of 25 trucks were equipped with the dual camera system, which resulted in a 25% saving on MacNabb Waste’s fleet insurance renewal.
“Since installing the camera system supplied and fitted by Electrac we have seen a reduction on both incidents regarding third parties and our own vehicles. If we get a complaint from a member of the public regarding any incident with our trucks we can investigate it straight away. Within just six months of fitting the cameras we investigated three reported incidents regarding allegations of careless driving by one of our employees and I am happy to state that none of these were true. The cameras completely vindicated our staff. It is a great back up system for the drivers’ peace of mind and also provides the advantage that, if regrettably an accident were to happen, then we have evidence showing the circumstances up to and including the event. We also had a reduction on our fleet premium which is a nice bonus“. – Vincent MacNabb, Director, MacNabb Waste Management Ltd.
