Brubacher's Fleet Maintenance department is installing camera systems in our heavy trucks to improve blind spot visibility and for driver protection in the event of an accident caused by others. The camera records all sides of the truck, and automatically flips to a full screen view when the truck moves into a particular function. It can also support driver coaching and development efforts.

The cameras record and store several days of information. Should an accident occur, we can enter the location where it happened and pull the video footage to review the incident, support insurance claims and/or coach the driver.

This system was critical for Brubacher because employee safety is at the top of the list. So far, we've had one accident involving a truck and a car. Thanks to the camera system, our driver was found to be fault-free in the accident. In addition, new trucks are being ordered with lane departure, anti-rollover and adaptive braking technology.
