FMC Technologies is in process of deploying a video based safety program from SmartDrive across its entire fleet of 1300 vehicles. Seeking a solution to help advance the company's Destination Zero safety programme, FMC Technologies selected SmartDrive for its superior product quality, customer service and the results obtained after a successful evaluation. In a comprehensive study conducted with SmartDrive and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), FMC Technologies experienced significant improvement in driver behaviours.

As a leading player in the oil and gas equipment and services market, FMC Technologies places high importance on safety and environmental sustainability. FMC Technologies' Destination Zero safety programme pledges to reach and maintain zero incidents every day by cultivating a company wide mindset of prevention through reporting and intervention. SmartDrive's video based driver safety program perfectly supports this initiative by ensuring all incidents are reported accurately and quickly, while serving as an effective tool for coaching drivers on best practices for safe driving.

"After seeing the results from the study with SmartDrive, selecting the company's video based safety program was a no brainer," said Steve Ward, Corporate Director of Environmental Health and Safety at FMC Technologies. "We appreciate their attentive service approach as it relates to coaching our drivers, and know that with the SmartDrive program we will make significant strides toward our corporate goal of eliminating safety incidents."

SmartDrive's video based safety program identifies unsafe driving with an open platform that captures video, vehicle, audio, and driving data, and automatically offloads footage for expert review and analysis, providing a clear picture of what happened on the road. The platform identifies a fleet's best performing drivers, as well as those who need coaching to improve specific skills. SmartDrive is uniquely positioned to help fleets in the oil and gas industry by addressing the unique challenges they face given their diverse working environments, regulations, and vehicle configurations. Helping oil and gas fleets improve driving performance results in fewer incidents, and helps those fleets safeguard their drivers, the communities they serve, and the environment. Companies like FMC Technologies leverage SmartDrive to recognise and address specific risk areas, providing a systematic method to improve safety.
