Achieving Fleet Compliance for Duty of Care, Privacy and GDPR
Geotab is your Fleet Compliance Management Partner
According to legal obligations such as duty of care, should an accident occur involving one of your vehicles, and you are deemed to have not taken reasonable steps to ensure the driver’s safety, the financial and legal repercussions could severely impact your business. Ignorance and bad luck aren't valid excuses, so Geotab's fleet management solution is here to help you comply with health and safety regulations.
Are You GDPR Compliant?
What is GDPR, and what does it mean for fleet management?
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on May 25 2018, replacing the 1995 Data Protection Directive. GDPR is, in many ways, a legislative continuation of existing data privacy principles. In fact, GDPR is an opportunity for businesses to demonstrate to customers, regulators, suppliers, and the public, that responsible data governance is a core feature of their organisation. Compliance with GDPR is not optional, and concerted efforts must be taken by fleet managers with organisational buy-in, from top to bottom.
Geotab and GDPR
Geotab’s open platform telematics solution provides fleet managers with the tools they need to run their fleets in a safe and secure manner, while protecting sensitive information about their fleet operations and drivers. Fleet managers can use Geotab to increase fuel efficiency, reinforce driver safety, and reduce maintenance costs.

Daily walkaround safety checks are a legal obligation in the UK. Drivers are responsible for ensuring that their vehicles are safe to drive before setting off on a journey. As well as this, operators and fleet managers must carry out safety inspections before the vehicle is used for the first time, even if they're just leasing, hiring or borrowing a vehicle. The advantages of Geotab Drive App for Vehicle Checks:
Drivers can easily report defects from their app
Real-time data allows for earlier defect resolution
Immediately view and tailor reports

Fulfil your Fleet Duty of Care Obligations
Under Duty of Care and the Health and Safety Executive’s INDG382 ‘Driving at Work’ document, all employers have an obligation to ensure Work Related Road Safety (WRRS) criteria is met. Protect the health and safety of your employees, and the reputation of your company, by ensuring that your drivers are safe and aware of dangers while on the road. Geotab is a unique fleet safety solution with proven results in drastically reducing accidents.
Typical telematics solutions tend to record locations, driving times, patterns and routes, with a logging system to ensure timetables are met. This was also the starting point for Geotab, when we started 15 years ago. Today, we're taking duty of care compliance to the next level, thanks to our continuous research, development and innovation.
