The DriveCam Difference

WCA Waste wanted to find a tool that allowed the company to get a big-picture view of how its fleet was performing out on the road, and to change unsafe driving behaviours.

At first, some drivers were uneasy with the DriveCam® safety programme, but as time went on, those same drivers expressed gratitude for the fact that the programme changed their driving behaviours for the better.

With nearly 100% of the fleet using the DriveCam programme, WCA Waste saw an overall decrease in collisions, and a decrease in the severity of collisions across the board. One team went collision- and injury-free for an entire year.

When there was a collision, the company was able to better understand what led up to that event, and coach driving behaviours using a method that allowed the drivers to self critique the incident. The video clips also helped exonerate some drivers after incidents.
