Companies with fleet cars must do everything they can to ensure that their occupants are safe on the road and well-prepared in the event of an emergency. While there are some regulations that require certain emergency equipment to be included in fleet cars, there’s a number of additional accessories which can go a long way in helping a company protect its interests. Safety Dave makes high quality safety equipment easily accessible to homes and businesses throughout Australia. If you are looking for reversing cameras or a defibrillator for sale, you can rely on Dave for reliable and affordable options. Here we will look at a number of aftermarket safety items that every fleet car should carry.
Reversing cameras increase visibility behind the vehicle, reducing the likelihood of potentially fatal accidents while reversing or parking. Highly recommended for larger vehicles such as trucks, buses and heavy machinery, they are also highly beneficial for cars of all sizes. With a reversing camera installed, the driver has a complete view behind the vehicle’s rear, reducing the risk of injury to occupants of the car or nearby pedestrians. Rear vision cameras have the added benefit of keeping drivers comfortable, they create an ergonomic driving experience as there is less need for twisting and turning the driver’s neck into uncomfortable positions.
Fire extinguishers can make the biggest difference in limiting the amount of damage caused if there is any kind of fire within your fleet’s vehicles. Cost-effective and easy to use, every company vehicle, should be equipped with one.
First Aid Kit
First aid equipment is a vital part of every workplace, but safety equipment in work vehicles is often overlooked. Every fleet vehicle should be equipped with a portable first aid kit which contains all the essentials needed for emergencies on the go. Thermal blankets are another important item that every company car should have, as well as disposable masks and hand sanitiser to keep employees safe and well. A portable AED (defibrillator) is considered essential in many workplaces but also often overlooked when it comes to vehicles. More than 30,000 Australians suffer a cardiac arrest each year, and if it happens outside a hospital, their chances of survival are less than 1 in 10. Defibrillators save lives, and every company vehicle should have one.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Tyre pressure monitoring systems record tyre pressure in real-time, alerting drivers to any changes to inflation. They play a vital role in helping drivers and fleet managers to keep an active eye on the condition of their vehicles and make sure their vehicles are safe and well-maintained. A TPMS also helps to extend the life of tyres, and as such, they help business owners and fleet managers avoid vehicle downtime by maintaining the correct tyre pressure and keeping vehicles safe on the road.
Dash cams promote safety and efficiency and are a great addition to any fleet car. Footage captures indisputable evidence in the event of an accident or incident, helping to protect both companies and drivers from fraudulent or false accusations. Fleet managers may also see operational cost reductions as dash cams monitor driver behaviour, and this can help with training drivers to be more efficient and safer on the roads.
