O'Donovan partners with CheckedSafe to use compliance app

O'Donovan partners with CheckedSafe to use compliance app

O'Donovan Waste Disposal is now equipping its drivers with the CheckedSafe app for carrying out daily walk around checks across its fleet of 90 HGVs.

This new innovative system replaces the traditionally paper-based checks by moving to a digital system.  Drivers can now perform all daily inspection checks at the click of a button, with all information logged and accessible in real-time giving the transport team insights into the information gathered.  This will speed up the process and enhance communication between drivers, technicians and management.  The App records the GPS coordinates and duration of the check taking place thus giving peace of mind that adequate time is taken by the driver to complete it. Drivers can also add detailed notes and take pictures regarding any defects noted and the actions they took to correct them.

O’Donovan’s business-wide commitment to excellence has seen a substantial investment of time and resources into technological innovation, continually setting new standards for fleet safety and best practice.   “We are delighted to be working with CheckedSafe.  Safety is our number-one priority and a system that contributes to overall vehicle compliance and health and safety is a welcome addition.” Says Jacqueline O'Donovan, managing director of the family run business.

Lee Hayhow, Operations Officer at O'Donovan added “The system is easy to use and to implement which is crucial.  It can be fully customised, so we can modify the checks to suit our specific requirements.” 

Darran Harris, Director of CheckedSafe commented “We are delighted to welcome O'Donovan Waste as a customer. O’Donovan are a very progressive and forward-thinking company who are constantly looking at ways of improving their systems. By using CheckedSafe, they can be confident in the knowledge that they are managing compliance efficiently and thoroughly. We are delighted with the ease with which their users have adopted the system. Hopefully the rest of the industry will follow suit. “
