The construction industry constantly faces rising costs due to mounting insurance premiums, increased expenses related to claims and compliance with strict safety regulations.
To combat these challenges, Danella Companies, a provider of construction services to utility and railroad customers, implemented a video-based safety program in all vehicle types across its fleet—from vehicles driven by project managers to equipment driven by operators. As a result, Danella experienced significant safety enhancements, leading to fewer collisions, reduced litigation costs and enhanced profitability.
