Increased Staff Safety In The Working Environment

The ITS IntelliTrac GPS fleet management system can help you to comply with the new health & safety at work act 

A greater component is safety for lone workers.

If you’re sending somebody out on a job alone, what has your organisation done to keep that person safe?

If they’re in a rural location, or forestry, can you still track them?

From the business side of things, do you know how a vehicle is actually being operated?

Or where your staff are?

If your company vehicle is being driven erratically and there is an accident which could have been prevented

your business could be liable.

With a major change to the Health and Safety in Employment Act (1992), its stated aim is to reduce New Zealand’s workplace injury and death rate 25% by 2020. It’s modelled closely on the Australian Work Health and Safety Act, which has been the catalyst for a 16% reduction in work-related deaths since 2012.  A key difference in the bill from existing legislation is that directors of a company could be held liable for failing to ensure that a PCBU complies with health and safety regulations – even if they have not directly contributed to the failure.

In short, the onus will be on all business owners and directors to be more proactive in terms of workplace safety. This is a particularly important issue for companies running fleet vehicles, which are already regarded as workplaces under currently legislation: more stringent rules mean even more complexity over what are essentially mobile workplaces.

Andrew Wallington, CEO and Co-founder of ITS Intelligent Tracking Solutions “IntelliTrac” the fastest growing Satellite and GPS-tracking specialist company based in Australasia, says he’s already seeing an massive increase in enquiry from companies with loan workers being just for man down SOS functionality or larger fleet operators in anticipation of the new legislation and changes in the mind set of New Zealand company owners and operators to their staffs working environment and location safety risks.

Our staff are picked on the basis of listening to their clients requests, there in-depth knowledge of our industry and being able to think outside the box
