The new systems are superseding the traditionally paper-based checks, and follow a feasibility study carried out for Amey into moving over to digital systems.
Tom Lawless, Amey’s Fleet and plant director, says the firm identified eight companies as possible solution providers, but chose CheckedSafe after a series of rigorous tests.
“Early adoption of this new application demonstrates Amey’s commitment to investing in new technology that supports our strategic objectives of improving our overall vehicle compliance and health and safety performance,” comments Lawless.
“We are delighted to be working with CheckedSafe and are confident that we are partnering with an organisation who understands our needs.”
“The safety of our employees, partners and the communities we serve is our number-one priority, so we are delighted to have engaged with CheckedSafe,” states Julie Davies, Amey’s fleet plant and compliance manager, adding that the system enhances and expedites fleet compliance checks.
“CheckedSafe were chosen as our preferred supplier due to the ease of use of their system, and also the knowledge base that the company’s directors, Darran Harris and Gary Hawthorne, bring.”
Davies explains that, by moving to a digital system, Amey’s fleet managers can now perform all daily checks at the click of a button, while managers gain insights into where checks were carried out, how long they took, and any defects identified.
