Lyndon Scaffolding has recently implemented a new van driver behavioural change tool called Lightfoot – aimed at improving driving safety, quality and behaviour.
Each van is fitted with a little box which clearly shows the driver simple green, amber and red lights reflecting how “well” they are driving.
It also gives audible “nudges” when the driver does something considered to be bad, such as over-accelerating, sharp cornering or sudden braking.
As part of the programme, drivers performing well each week go into a weekly Lyndon prize draw with one lucky person winning a prize.
In addition, the scheme organisers at Lightfoot also do a weekly prize draw across all their customers’ fleets. Lyndon drivers who register with the Lightfoot app sign up to this programme and qualify for the prize draws. Lyndon Scaffolding is actively promoting Lightfoot to encourage engagement and an even safer, better standard of driving across our 150+ strong van fleet.
Keith Addis, Lyndon Scaffolding’s Finance Director said: “We installed the Lightfoot system in all our vans in June/July with the aim of improving the way our vans are driven. We are trying to motivate our drivers to drive both safely and more efficiently. With over 150 vans in our vehicle fleet, we believe this will reduce accidents and improve fuel consumption, thus reducing costs significantly.”
