The benefits of Sentinel for the Back-Office

Fatigue is one of the most highly regulated aspects of the transport industry and is a major concern in the road freight industry. Fatigue management remains a compliance concern as many drivers experience fatigue on trips, yet it can be the most challenging to manage. The rules can be complex and logbooks can be difficult to complete and keep up-to-date.

  • Proactively manage fatigue; everyone in the transport chain is able to fulfil their obligations to the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA)
  • It frees up time, allowing your managers and staff to concentrate on more strategic initiatives
  • No more duplication! You no longer need to re-key into spreadsheets
  • Audit information can be compiled at the click of a button - missing or damaged paperwork is no longer an issue
  • Built in logbook checker and complete non-conformance report actions

Sentinel; An EWD for drivers

Sentinel is a driver’s tool designed specifically for the transport industry. Drivers are presented with a simple, informative and real-time view of their fatigue status information allowing them to effectively manage their own fatigue. Sentinel provides advanced audio and visual alerts of when the next rest break is required, by logging driver start, stop and rest times. Rest breaks are based on event history and calculated against fatigue rule sets – all in real-time rather than after the fact.

  • Monitors, calculates and records work and rest times for your drivers.
  • Helps ensure drivers meet fatigue work and rest hours based on their assigned rule-set 
  • Operates independent of the mobile network when the driver is offline and out-of-range
  • Minimises errors with accurate current and historical information
  • Instant alerts before a driver is required to take a break so they can find an appropriate area to rest
  • Provides instant feedback to the driver to help them understand fatigue rules
