DENVER, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cartasite was recognized as the Best Product in Health and Safety at the recent Oil and Gas Awards for its ROVR solution.
Cartasite technology solutions were nominated in three categories and won the prestigious Best Product Award in Health and Safety. Since its introduction in 2009, ROVR has proving effective in reducing motor vehicle crash rates by over 55 percent and has been embraced by operators and service companies in the energy industry worldwide.
"While it's a great honor to be recognized by the industry for the contributions we are making to worker safety, the most important acknowledgements are those we receive from our customers," said David Armitage, CEO and Founder. "We hear almost every day how ROVR is helping return people home safely to their families and reduce the risks each of us face behind the wheel."
ROVR continuously monitors driver behavior and identifies subtle leading indicators of crash risk. This data is sent in realtime to cloud servers, which in turn generate a scorecard assessing individual performance. These scorecards are emailed to drivers providing feedback and insight that has proven remarkably effective in reducing motor vehicle incidents. Cartasite was recently awarded a very significant patent for the innovations and algorithms used in the ROVR technology.
"The greatest risk oil and gas workers face are vehicular injuries and fatalities," Armitage explained. "ROVR provides an objective assessment of their performance. Our customers use the scorecards to encourage 'constructive competition' between the drivers. With workers vying for the highest score each week, everyone wins."
Armitage noted that Cartasite's clients in the oil and gas industry are very sensitive to the concerns of the communities in which they operate. "Driver accountability and a demonstrable commitment to highway safety is a critical focus for the industry," he said. "ROVR is an effective and inexpensive solution to ensure we are doing everything possible to reduce risk and operate safely."
