The pros and cons of GPS v GSM for protecting vehicles, trailers and machinery

The pros and cons of GPS v GSM for protecting vehicles, trailers and machinery

Over the past 5 years the total number of car thefts in UK has gone from 66,360 in 2009/10 to 39,588 in 2013/14, a drop of  40.3%. (Source: The Car People original research March 2015). However recovery rate statistics for 2002-2012 from Retaina Group show a decline from 70% to 41%. You are less likely to lose your Fiat or Ford these days, but professional gangs targeting top end luxury vehicles are making it harder for those cars to be recovered.

Driving at Work

Managing work-related road safety

Driving at Work

Introduction

More than a quarter of all road traffic incidents may involve somebody who is driving as part of their work at the time (Department for Transport figures).

Health and safety law applies to work activities on the road in the same way as it does to all work activities and you need to manage the risks to drivers as part of your health and safety arrangements. This post suggests ways you can do this. Effective management of work-related road safety helps reduce risk, no matter what size your organisation is. It could also result in, for example:

  • fewer injuries to drivers
  • reduced risk of work-related ill health
  • reduced stress and improved morale

Health and safety law does not apply to people commuting (ie travelling between their home and their usual place of work), unless they are travelling from their home to somewhere which is not their usual place of work.

Indestructible Unit

Posted in News

17/12/2014

Our MT3 unit has taken us on some long journeys before, but the latest one has been quite something to be proud of. About 4 years ago our MT3 led one of our Finders oversees to Malaga Docks. Faced with a gang of Rottweilers and only a bag of Doritos in hand he managed to befriend the hungry canines and gain access to the stolen JCB which had been stolen to order and hidden in a container. Job done.
