July 2021
Fatigued drivers? How you can manage the risksBOOK NOW
05/07/2021 14:00:00 - 05/07/2021 16:00:00

When: Monday 5th July at 2:00 pm

Where: Via ZOOM

Join us for an online event to get the latest insights into fatigue risk management. 

Fatigue is inevitable. It cannot be eliminated and its risks are ever present in a transport or logistics operation. However, by understanding the problem and applying some proven tools and techniques, fatigue risk can be managed both on the road and in the workplace.

This webinar will highlight the physiological, behavioural and operational contributors. We will question whether the law is enough to prevent drivers from falling asleep at the wheel and propose a series of progressive practical measures that can be implemented in any operation. The session will include a presentation, case study and panel discussion covering:

  • The scale of driver fatigue and the problem it presents
  • Drivers’ hours management versus fatigue risk management
  • Fatigue management at the operational level
  • Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS): Lessons learned from other industry sectors

Ask yourself some important questions:  https://vimeo.com/560836017

All attendees will receive free practical tools to make this yet another, must attend event delivered by the Transport & Logistics Safety Forum.

Cost:
Members Free
Non Members £5.00

Boost your business performance with low-cost, high-impact digital solutions!BOOK NOW
08/07/2021 15:00:00 - 08/07/2021 16:30:00

When: 08 July 2021, 15:00 - 16:30
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speakers: 


In collaboration with the IfM and Cambridge University, WMR are delighted to invite logistics SMEs and specialists to this step-change event.  Logistics participants will be guided through a self-analysis of their "order winners" and “business constraints”, with the aim of helping identify potential low-cost, high-impact digital solutions for boosting their supply chain business.

The stimulating workshop will include an overview of proven approaches to developing low-cost solutions using off the shelf devices and open-source software. There will also be follow-up opportunities for interested companies to engage directly with the IfM, at no cost, in the development of pilot solutions.

Learn how to:

  • Enhance your edge with low-cost, off the shelf technologies
  • Accelerate your advantage with digital solutions
  • Maximise your success by overcoming barriers

Questions we’ll be answering include:

  • What are some simple digital solutions my operation could consider?
  • How do I prioritise where to start? in the warehouse, inbound, transportation etc
  • Which sections of my business would benefit most from digital solutions?
  • When you talk about low cost digital solutions - what do you mean? How low cost?

Participants can expect to gain understanding of:

  • Knowledge of different (low cost) digital solution to consider
  • How different digital solutions address key issues for the business
  • What the priority digital solutions are for the business (and how these compare with the priorities for other businesses)


The outputs of the workshop will be combined with those from other similar events to build a data set on the requirements of logistics SMEs, and to inform the development of lab demonstrators, as well as the prototyping/pilot testing of technologies and methods useful for the logistics industry.
