The Formula for Creating a Culture of Safety

By Ed Renna on July 23, 2018

Anyone who has ever dealt with the aftermath of an on-the-job accident or fatality will be the first to attest that not only should safety be in the front seat, it should be the driver.

To Succeed, Companies Must Invite New Members to the Safety Table

By Max Head on July 23, 2018

When it comes to fleet safety, technology giveth and it taketh away.

By Geoff Troxel on May 31, 2018

Most people enjoy receiving incentives. Buy groceries at the store and pay lower gas prices at the pump through a rewards program.

And, if so, how do incentives work in an increasingly data-driven world?

Moving Safety Forward Since 1947

By Matt Wood on January 5, 2018

A Brief History

Founded in 1947, PRECO Electronics has become a worldwide leader in heavy-duty safety innovation. PRECO patented the world’s first electronic backup alarm as a result of watching utility employees on dam sites. Ed Peterson, PRECO’s founder, noticed that accidents were frequently happening while heavy equipment was operating in reverse. The flaggers used at the time weren’t safe because the equipment blind spots were too massive.

The Secret Weapon in Creating a Safety-Driven Culture

By Matt Wood on October 3, 2017

On-the-job injuries and fatalities are rarely caused by workplace conditions alone. Rather, the vast majority of accidents happen as a result of unsafe work behaviors, usually due to complacency and workers just “going through the motions.” The good news is, behaviors can change. Molding those behaviors to follow the belief that safety is a value not a priority (priorities can shift, after all) is an essential component to cultivating a safety-driven culture.
