Hours of Service

Driver fatigue is a serious concern for any fleet operator.

For years, fatigue-related accidents have been directly linked to the number of hours spent driving. In fact, the first driving hours laws were introduced for commercial vehicle drivers during the first half of the 20th century already.

The Hours of Service (HOS) solution by MiX Telematics is a comprehensive electronic toolkit that enables the efficient monitoring of drivers’ on-duty time. The solution works in conjunction with MiX Telematics’ on-board computer and, online tracking and monitoring software. 
  
HOS is designed to allow drivers to effectively manage and reduce their fatigue, therefore improving safety. Along with this key benefit, this solution allows fleet operators to comply with HOS regulations across different states using online methods to simplify adherence to HOS rules.

Although driver-centric, this solution is actually designed to minimise interference with the driver and enable operators to improve overall efficiency, while reducing business risk related to safety and fatigue. It allows for a real-time view of accurate information and, makes it possible for drivers to log both on- and off-duty hours. Drivers can also indicate other statuses like when a driver has stopped at rest stops or is visiting a customer site.

Benefits

  • Centralised driver management. Fleet managers can monitor their drivers’ on-duty hours and activities using a single interface.
  • Safer drivers who benefit not only themselves and other road users but also improve service quality and reduce operational costs.
  • Less paperwork, because of the switch to electronic, which saves time and money while also ensuring an accurate way to manage driver safety.
  • Accurate compliance with region-specific regulations and policies. Fleet managers can rest assured that their duty of care and Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) responsibilities are being met.
  • Managing driver fatigue and daily operations increases productivity and efficiency.
  • Optimising the fatigue management process lowers risk, liability and costs by preventing drowsy driving and reducing the likelihood of accidents.
