At the wheel of a 56 ton rig, the ability of the driver to recognise, anticipate, judge, react and coordinate his body are important not only for the safe delivery of cargo but also for the lives of the people around him.
By getting your drivers to Train on the EyeGym program, research shows that significant improvements in key eye brain function can be attained over 4 weeks, improvement is translating into dramatically reduced risk, please read the trial results done with a Depot of professional tanker drivers.

IMPROVING TELEMATICS SCORES BY IMPROVING HOW DRIVERS SEE-PREDICT- DECIDE AND ACT
At the very heart of good Telematics scores (and low risk of an accident), is good defensive driving, the foundation of which is the concept of SEE- PREDICT-DECIDE and ACT.
Quite obviously the ability of a driver to implement the concept depends to a large extent of the ability of his Visual performance, or her eye and brain to perform these tasks. We spent two years tracking fuel tanker drivers who had been trained on Eyegym and compared them to two control groups who had not. The results are astounding and shown below.
