MCGINLEY REWARDS SAFE DRIVING
11 March 2015
McGinley Support Services, the UK’s largest specialist recruitment business for infrastructure markets, has launched a reward scheme to encourage safe driving within its fleet.
The ‘drive safe’ Reward Scheme recognises and rewards drivers within the McGinley fleet of over 400 minibuses, vans and cars who perform over and above the desired safety standard. Prizes include large screen TV’s, track day experiences and laptops, and winners are drawn on a monthly and annual basis.
The scheme is underpinned by FMG’s Ingenium Dynamics driver behaviour telemetry and incident prevention service, which focusses on reducing the frequency of motor incidents through improving driver behaviour. Ingenium Dynamics effectively monitors a driver’s behaviour, focussing on speed, braking, cornering and idling, and issues a score at the end of every journey. McGinley drivers must achieve an average score of 80% or more and travel over 1000 miles in the month period to be eligible for the ‘drive safe’ draw.
Andy Saunders, Fleet Manager at McGinley Support Services said: “Driver and passenger safety is at the heart of everything we do and we’ve been very impressed with the way our drivers have adopted Ingenium Dynamics. We like to reward excellence and the ‘drive safe’ scheme seemed like a logical next step to acknowledge safe driving and reinforce our resolute commitment to driver safety.”
Harvey Stead, Commercial Director at FMG said: “Inspiring driver adoption can be a significant challenge when introducing telemetry and we specialise in working closely with customers to engage drivers from the very start. McGinley ‘drive safe’ scheme motivates drivers to take responsibility for their own driving style which makes for a much safer workforce.”
Ingenium Dynamics forms a key component of FMG’s end-to-end incident management and prevention service, and has been proven to significantly improve fuel efficiency, reduce vehicle wear and tear, mitigate insurance premium increases and reduce carbon emissions.
