BOCA RATON, Florida, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
MiX Telematics (NYSE: MIXT), a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions, is participating in the SPE E&P Health, Safety, Security, and Environmental Conference - Americas, from 16 to 18 March. Skip Kinford, President and CEO of MiX Americas, says that the event offers an ideal platform for the company to demonstrate their commitment to developing and implementing reliable safety solutions for fleets within the oil and gas sector.
Wayne Fee, Head of Global Sales at MiX Telematics, will be joining a panel of speakers at the SPE to discuss health and wellbeing in the modern workplace. In particular, Fee will discuss fatigue detection technology and its relevance to the oil and gas industry. The discussion will take place on Monday the 16th from 13:45 to 15:15 (MDT).
The discussion and presentation offer an in-depth look at emerging detection technology as a potential means to prevent fatigue-related incidents. According to the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), technology designed to detect driver fatigue has been available for some time, but adoption has been slow.
"MiX Telematics's fleet management solutions have proven safety, efficiency and compliance benefits. Through continuous improvement in driver behavior, our customers have achieved significant reductions in accident rates and fuel costs. At the same time, the technology enables operators to comply with all mandated regulatory requirements," says Kinford.
Among other business verticals, MiX Telematics has worked within the oil and gas industry for over a decade and has the privilege of partnering with industry leaders such Baker Hughes, Basic Energy, Chevron and many others.
"We look forward to connecting with our current clients at the show as well as to establishing relationships with other industry experts and prospective clients in the region," concludes Kinford.
MiX Telematics can be visited at Booth #3 at the SPE E&P Health, Safety, Security, and Environmental Conference - Americas. The event is being held in Denver, Colorado, at the Omni Interlocken Resort, 500 Interlocken Blvd, Broomfield, from 16 to 18 March 2015. The discussion on health and wellbeing in the modern workplace will take place from 13:45 to 15:15 on Monday the 16th.
