Highway service provider Ringway Jacobs has been using a solution that combines the Peoplesafe Pro lone worker app with SureCam video telematics.

Dual facing connected dash cams were initially fitted on 163 Ringway Jacobs’ vans and specialist vehicles across the fleet – with more being fitted continuously – enabling footage to be viewed by Peoplesafe’s Alarm Controllers in the event of any alarm being raised on the Pro mobile App.

Drivers scan a QR code using the Pro mobile App to register their ID, which confirms who is driving the vehicle. This then automatically enables controllers in the Peoplesafe Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) to access both audio communication and video footage, as well as incident data when an alarm is raised. This could be an injury, illness, accident, or incident of aggression.

David Bonehill, head of fleet at Ringway Jacobs, said: “This latest initiative, developed with our valued partners at Peoplesafe and SureCam, will not only increase compliance of our lone worker processes, but also extend and enhance the levels of protection we can provide our drivers.”

Footage from forward-and rear-facing vehicle cameras provides visual insight into what has happened. The incidents can be recorded and the combination of the app and video mean that access to emergency help is much faster than calling 999. The system is also said to support the driver both in and outside the cab of their vehicle.

Peoplesafe CEO Naz Dossa said: “We’ve been providing peace of mind to over 300 Ringway Jacobs employees for six years and are delighted that the company is now experiencing an improved level of safety and fleet risk reduction, thanks to our new integrated SureCam solution. Drivers are also seeing an increased and enhanced level of support both in and out of their vehicles.”
