STATE OF THE INDUSTRY

The Transportation & Logistics sector poses many risks, with employees responsible for delivering goods to businesses and consumers. Large manufacturing facilities often have their own warehouses and transportation services nearby. But long shifts combined with attention to detail and physically challenging duties, like maneuvering heavy loads and hazardous working environments, contribute to employee fatigue.

You need to ensure the right safety measures are taken to protect your most valuable asset–your employees.

Consider this: The American Trucking Associations (ATA) reports the industry moves 9.2 billion tons of freight annually with big transport trucks logging nearly 400 billion miles each year. The U.S. Department of Transportation reported fatalities rose to nearly 4,000 in 2013, including truckers, occupants in vehicles that collided with large transport trucks and other incidents. Additionally, ATA released federal data that showed driving too fast for conditions or over the speed limit was the primary reason for 18% of fatal crashes where a large truck was deemed at fault.

In addition to the fatalities reported, incidents occur that put many lone workers on disability, sometimes short-term and, in many cases, for life.

INDUSTRY STATISTICS

YOUR SAFETY POLICY

Your teams often work in a variety of environments where work alone drivers travel for long periods of time on unpredictable terrain, all while risking fatigue or falling asleep behind the wheel. Other team members are responsible for operating large equipment, transferring and shipping products to public-facing environments.

From crude oil haulers to warehouse personnel, you are responsible for the safety and well being of all of your employees who may be susceptible to accidents, health events and interaction with the public.

Do you have the right processes in place to immediately coordinate an emergency response when your crew needs help?

A BETTER WAY TO RESPOND

To make a difference, no time can be wasted in managing your emergency response.

Many organizations still use antiquated check-in procedures to ensure the ongoing safety of employees. This approach has proven it is incapable of responding fast enough, in real-time to make a difference for your lone workers.

Optimized emergency response time is at the core of Blackline Safety’s solutions. We provide all customers with the ability to quickly respond to injuries, health incidents and even animal attacks, in the shortest time possible.

In Transportation & Logistics applications where Blackline’s technology is used, responders can be directed in real-time not only to a precise outdoor location, but the exact floor and room an employee is located if indoors.

Our technology shaves minutes, even hours, off response time, when lone workers need help—regardless of location.
