Best Foot Forward with Lightfoot27th September 2021
STS Defence has invested in the award winning Lightfoot Telematics for all company vehicles with the specific aim of proactive prevention of accidents and carbon emissions.
Our plan for delivering real change is to encourage drivers to adopt and maintain a driving style that is better for the environment, and less likely to lead to an accident, using incentives rather than sanctions.
By implementing, we can deliver real change and achieve the 3 ‘G’s’:
• Better fuel efficiency – good for the planet
• Reduced maintenance costs – good for the business
• Fewer accidents – good for everyone
STS Defence’s Health and Safety Advisor Paul Frampton says: “By implementing the Lightfoot Telematics system into our company fleet, we are giving our drivers the tools to ensure that they have a safer, sustainable and more economic journey.”
Where does Lightfoot come in?
The Lightfoot system constantly listens to an engine to precisely assess the conditions the vehicle is facing. This means it is uniquely able to help drivers drive in the engine’s sweet spot.
One leading insurer has concluded that fleets using Lightfoot are seeing insurance claims drop by as much as 60%, alongside increased fuel economy, reductions in wear and tear and a lowering of harmful emissions.
With Lightfoot Telematics in our vehicles, we are expecting an annual CO2 reduction of 15% or 4 tonnes – the equivalent of planting 150 trees.
