Proactively Managing Driver Fatigue Maintaining driver safety and compliance is a crucial part of Dunnings Fuel operations, particularly fatigue. Dunnings utilise MTData’s live fatigue management solution, enabling them to proactively manage their driver’s work schedules. MTData’s web-based software, Hawk-Eye is used in conjunction with the driver in-vehicle screen solution. “For me managing fatigue is everything [in terms of maintaining compliance],” Transport and Logistics Manager of Dunnings Fuel, Matt Butt explained. “Using MTData’s fatigue solution, I can effectively set the driving and working limit for the drivers per day, which is made available for the drivers to view. We set the guidelines and the drivers know to stick to them the best they can. “To ensure that we are meeting compliance requirements, I can go back in Hawk-Eye to check that our drivers are all aligned with our guidelines; and I can compare it to the paperwork that they have filled out to ensure that they are correctly running their fatigue.” Dunnings’ drivers also utilise MTData’s in-vehicle driver screen, which visually and audibly alerts drivers of their upcoming due breaks, how long until a break is required, the duration required, and if they have breached their driving allowance. This way Dunnings’ drivers are given the required warnings to take a break while out making a fuel delivery.
