Reducing Driver Risk at Johnsons’ Workwear

DriverMetrics® has released a case study on its fleet risk management work with Johnsons’ Workwear.

Johnsons Workwear is the UK’s leading textile and workwear service provider, offering services to 36,000 customers ranging from large multinationals to small-medium sized businesses.

Johnsons’ strategy encompasses the installation of video telematics and DriverMetrics® integrated Driver Risk Index™ assessment and eLearning solution.

In Q1, 2020, there was a 50% decrease in at-fault incidents among Johnsons’ fleet when compared with Q1, 2019. This represented a reduction of 63% on Q1 2018 and was the lowest rate of recorded at-fault accidents in 10 years. Whilst the tail end of Q1 2020 saw the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK, quarterly mileage was just 1% less than the equivalent period in 2019.

Ian Greatrex, Johnsons’ National Logistics Manager said: “Along with the investment Johnsons Workwear has made into vehicle technology, we also wanted to invest in the drivers of those vehicles. DriverMetrics® have helped us achieve this by providingvthe Driver Risk Index™, enabling us to assess and train drivers in key areas. This has demonstrated our focus and commitment to improving the safety of our workforce, and played a key role in the fantastic results achieved so far in 2020”.
