Dubai, UAE: MiX Telematics, a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions, is the silver sponsor of Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Conference, that will be held in Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia from 18 – 19 November. The company is gearing up to highlight its key solutions in fleet management that have achieved enormous success in raising safety on roads as well as yielding savings on operations and maintenance.
MiX Telematics will also make a presentation over two days about its MiX SafeDrive, an integrated safety solution that offers defensive driving techniques, provides In-Vehicle Monitoring Systems (IVMS), identify unsafe behaviors and provide audible alerts. Moreover, this solution offers safety consultants with the ability to help establish, review and audit systems, processes and strategies related to land transport safety.

Moreover, the company is planning to present MiX Driver Training, a training programme dedicated to driver safety by enabling efficient and effective remedial action to be taken by fleet operators. This will include specific driver development programmes, defensive driver training, heavy vehicle operations, four-wheel drive and recovery techniques, and “Train the Trainer” programmes.

“Research has shown that over 80% of vehicle accidents are caused by human error. Our aim in sponsoring the HSE Conference is to reach out to a wider segment of fleet operators and decision-makers and introduce them to cost effective, simplified yet holistic solutions that would help reduce the costs of their fleet operations,” said Brodie von Berg, Head of Sales and Marketing at MiX Telematics Middle East

“By learning defensive driving techniques and hazard perception skills, drivers can be more aware of potentially hazardous situations and avoid being involved in a collision. Both the hardware and smart solutions that we provide yield high ROI within a short period. We want to reach out to safe drivers in safe vehicles on safe roads. Our global experience shows that this is achievable if certain steps are implemented accurately,” added von Berg.

Over two days, Mix Telematics will embark on a format to largely benefit the HSE Leaders of Saudi Arabia, who will take a realistic look at the efficient fleet management sector, and offer insights, strategies, case studies, in-depth discussions and practical examples to weather the challenges they face in this regard.
