Safer Domestic Collections

Collective and SafeActive help you keep your crews and residents as safe as possible

Electronic risk assessments

Safe working starts with good route design, making sure your crews know where they are going, what risks they will encounter and how best to approach each street.

Collective ensures that your domestic collections routes have up-to-date risk assessments for each street and highlights all single-sided, reverse-in and drive out loading streets, and any which must not be traversed by the vehicle. The information is shown in-cab as the driver approaches.

Time constraints for schools, places of worship and route features are embedded so you can be sure crews respect exclusion arrangements, whilst our continuous route optimisation system will always design routes to comply with the latest risk assessment.

Monitor safe working practices

How can you can be sure that crews are working safely and following best practice?

The demands on supervisors are enormous and monitoring safe working and compliance with procedures requires consistent focus that can be very hard to achieve. Our SafeActive system uses vehicle telematics, onboard video systems and information from the crews themselves to regularly audit work and highlight areas for improvement.

With SafeActive you can ensure compliance with the minimum effort with transparent electronic auditing. Measure safety instead of counting accidents, for continuous improvement and constant compliance.


Do you know where your vehicles are reversing and why?

You design your routes to minimise reversing and risk-assess those that are necessary. But do you know if your crews are actually following those routes and carrying out the assessed manoeuvres as you expected?

Collective records every planned reversing location and monitors the vehicles to determine when planned and unplanned reverses take place.  With SafeActive you can directly view reversing manoeuvres to assess whether they were necessary, carried out safely and whether they could be eliminated.

Video Telematics

Regular monitoring of your operations with onboard cameras, 360 degree CCTV and dashcams is a great way to ensure that crews are working safely at all times.  SafeActive works with multiple vehicle and camera systems so you avoid the time-consuming complexity of running multiple software applications to access video.

SafeActive is designed to bring multiple camera feeds into a single, easy-to-use tracking and viewing platform.simplifying operations with the camera equipment you already have.

Our advanced telematics lets you focus on key events. Know when each bin lift occurs, when the beacons are on or off, when the doors are open and how much waste is onboard in real-time, all the time.   Collective and SafeActive give you simple dashboards or the ‘big data’ of second-by-second data capture.
