WABCO SmartDrive systemsSmartDrive Systems announced that Houston-based FMC Technologies, a global provider of technology and services for the oil and gas industry, is in-process of deploying SmartDrive’s video-based safety program across its entire fleet of 1,300 vehicles.

FMC was seeking a solution to help advance the company’s Destination Zero safety program and selected SmartDrive 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 behaviors.

As a large player in the oil and gas equipment and services market, FMC Technologies places high importance on safety and environmental sustainability. Its Destination Zero safety program 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 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.

“We are honored to partner with FMC Technologies, particularly as the company continues to move towards its Destination Zero goal,” said Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. “All of us at SmartDrive share this level of commitment to safety and look forward to collaborating with FMC Technologies to protect its employees and others on the road.”
