PLM partners with Samba Safety

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Company (PLM) has partnered with an industry leader in driver risk management, Samba Safety, to offer continuous motor vehicle registration (MVR) monitoring.

Based in Greenville, Colo., Samba Safety provides driver risk management software in North America. The company and its software collects, correlates, and analyzes MVRs while identifying driver risk.

The company claims its program allows customers to modify drivers’ behavior, reduce accidents, ensure compliance, and lower costs while ultimately improving driver and community safety.

PLM cites that driving is one of the most hazardous tasks performed in the workplace. There were 42,000 motor vehicle collision deaths in 2016, according to the National Safety Council, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that vehicle collisions have been the leading cause of deaths at the workplace for many years. About 94% of vehicle collisions, or accidents, are caused by driver error according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“Continuous MVR monitoring goes a step ahead of simply pulling MVRs at one point in time by monitoring behavior in real time, so it can be addressed as soon as possible,” PLM said in a prepared statement.

Through this partnership, PLM is offsetting the costs by paying the one-time base enrollment fee for all customers who sign up, and Samba Safety is offering a 20% discount to PLM customers that purchase their services.

Based in Philadelphia, Pa., PLM is the oldest and largest mutual insurance company dedicated to wood products and building material industries.
