Lytx Driver-Powered Safety Features

driver-powered safety features

After working with thousands of fleets across various industries, we’ve learned that no two fleets are the same, especially when it comes to managing driver safety.

Some fleets prefer to set up company-wide coaching programs, while others prefer to let drivers correct their own behaviors. Lytx’s new driver-powered safety features give drivers the ability to self-correct and self-coach, empowering them to stay safe on the road and allowing you to focus on running your business.

Lytx features to help you empower your drivers include:

Alerts for real-time improvement

Real-time alerts can help drivers self-correct throughout their day, while giving management the data-driven reports they need to monitor progress and intervene if needed. With the Lytx DriveCam® SF300 Event Recorder, we offer in-cab audio alerts to help your drivers self-correct in real time. Fleet managers can select behaviors they’d like to focus on to help drivers correct their distractions and behaviors with alerts in the moment without manager intervention.*

Driver Check-in Tools

Lytx Driver check-in tools allow your drivers to quickly review distracted or unsafe driving—with little or no manager intervention.

Weekly Driver Summary emails

Fleet managers can set up recurring emails to share trends and rankings. These emails can help drivers track their safety performance without the need to log in. Meaning, you won’t need to set them up with a Lytx account. This can encourage drivers to manage their own progress towards safer driving.

Lytx Driver App

The Lytx Driver App lets drivers watch recordings of when they exhibited risky behaviors such as cell phone use, eating or drinking, or following too closely. Drivers can also review their performance metrics and get tips on how to improve – all on their mobile device. Drivers set up with login credentials can access the app once downloaded from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. The driver app offers a seamless interface making it easy to navigate and get the information you need, quickly and efficiently.

Lytx Web Application

Drivers with Lytx Account login credentials can see their Driver Profile for an overview of their performance over the past 90 days, including driving score, common behaviors, and video of recent events.

Solutions that adapt to your fleet

Lytx services and features are customizable to help you be more efficient and adapt to your specific fleet’s needs.

Coaching workflow options that adapt to your business

Fleets that use the Lytx Driver Safety Program are offered flexible coaching options. Time, personnel, and policies differ from fleet to fleet and may change over time. That’s why we offer a range of coaching options from face-to-face coaching and remote coaching to self-coaching. Fleets can also enable an option that allows them to escalate drivers who exceed a score threshold (ie. a driver had x risky events in 30 days) to face-to-face coaching. Drivers that are at or below your set threshold wouldn't be identified for coaching—helping put the power in the hands of your drivers so that you can focus on coaching the drivers that need it most.

Coaching drivers isn’t for everyone. Many fleets say they don’t have the time or resources to coach, but still want to improve safety. The Lytx Risk Detection Service puts the power of self-improvement in drivers' hands, encouraging them to elevate their performance without the need for manager intervention.

Tagging video helps drivers show you what matters

Drivers can manually “tag” events by pressing a button on the DriveCam Event Recorder. Once they press the button, the device records a short clip of what they’re seeing and flags it to their manager. By empowering your drivers to tag things like overflowing trash bins, locked delivery gates, and other safety concerns, you’re giving them the chance to give you their perspective with video.

Recognition goes a long way

Recognition shows employees that their company values them and their contributions to the success of their team and the company overall, motivating them to continue great work. You can give positive recognition easily within the Lytx online platform and see a history of the recognition you’ve given. We offer a few recognition best practices and webinars to help get you started.

Placing the driver at the center of your safety program leads to results. Empowered drivers who take a stake in their own improvement fosters a shared goal around improvement and may free up your time to focus on other drivers or areas that need your attention.

Whether you want to adjust your existing program settings or add additional driver-empowerment features, you can customize your Lytx program to fit your unique fleet needs now and in the future.
