The data-driven insights provided by Intenseye enabled the Coats team to take swift actions, creating an immediate impact. Initial measures, including driver training and targeted behavioral training, resulted in a 20% reduction in overspeeding detections within the first week. Persistent communication and enforcement of safety requirements and controls led to a reduction of over 50% in overspeeding incidents. This proactive approach not only improved road safety at the facility but also demonstrated the effectiveness of using EHS management software to prevent safety incidents.
The Madurai New Mill Facility's experience showcases the vital role of technology in enhancing road safety, particularly in high-risk environments. With visible leadership commitment and real-time observation, the facility can efficiently address and mitigate road safety issues, ultimately contributing to the goal of eliminating traffic-related injuries and fatalities.
To tackle road safety challenges, Coats employed Intenseye's safety incident management software. By integrating with their existing CCTV infrastructure, AI workplace safety software enabled the Coats safety team to observe road conditions and identify risks, such as increased overspeeding incidents, allowing for timely and effective corrective actions.
Road safety is a global issue, leading to around 328 deaths occurring daily. India has the highest number of reported road accident deaths out of 199 countries, accounting for nearly 11% of all accident-related deaths worldwide. In 2019, 151,113 people were killed and 451,361 were injured in road traffic accidents in India, however, this may be an underestimation as not all injuries are reported to the police. Many efforts have been made to reduce these safety incidents, including the annual Road Safety Week organized by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways which runs from January 11th to January 17th and aims to raise awareness about the importance of road safety.
