How Samsara helps customers improve safety and save lives

IoT and AI are transformative technologies that allow organizations to identify and prevent high-risk behavior and extend "virtual safety coaches" to remote and distributed operations. Here’s how Samsara help customers foster a culture of safety:

Get insight into safety-critical data

Through the use of sensors and cameras, Samsara helps businesses of all kinds gain newfound visibility and insights into the safety of their operations. Fleet customers use our AI dash cams to automatically detect safety-critical events—like harsh braking and distracted driving—and send incident footage to the cloud. Industrial customers use our Machine Vision cameras to ensure labels for allergens, best-by-dates, and usage instructions are present, accurate, and properly applied for consumer safety.

Prevent accidents and save lives

Samsara doesn’t just provide data—our thoughtfully designed software provides the tools, reports, and insights needed to understand safety trends and enact change. Fleet customers can access robust driver scorecards, trend reports, and coaching workflows that are proven to decrease safety-critical events over time. Plus, our workforce solution offers advanced analytics to identify and minimize time spent by employees in hazardous areas.

Exonerate safe drivers from blame

With real-time detection of safety-critical events and auto-uploaded event footage, our fleet customers can exonerate innocent drivers from false claims and avoid lengthy litigation. In fact, more than 50% of dash cam customers have used Samsara dash cam footage to exonerate drivers in the past year. Many have found that Samsara’s unique ability to exonerate and engage drivers decreases driver turnover, helping keep safe drivers around.

Safety is so important to us. Since we’re on the road with the public, we have a huge responsibility to make sure our drivers are safe. Since we started working with Samsara, we have a clearer, more holistic view of safety. We have more data. We’re able to give feedback to our drivers faster and more accurately. We use that information to make better decisions and to show how much safety is improving at Dohrn.”
