Context

Hindustan Unilever, a leading global beverage company, aimed to enhance road safety by educating India's vast truck driver community on safe driving practices. Their goal was to not only impart crucial knowledge but also reward drivers for prioritizing safety.

Challenge

India's trucking industry faces significant road safety challenges due to various factors like long hours, fatigue, and road conditions. Hindustan Unilever sought to address these issues and instill a culture of safe driving among truck drivers.

Solution

Hindustan Unilever partnered with Almonds Ai to develop a comprehensive Safe Driving Education and Rewards Program. We launched a kiosk and app based interactive video based micro-training system to learn safety driving practices.

  •   Interactive Learning Modules:  Truck drivers could access bite-sized, gamified lessons on safe driving practices, fatigue management, and road awareness.
  •  Real-time Safety Alerts:   The app provided real-time alerts for weather conditions, traffic updates, and potential hazards on their routes.
  •   Rewards and Incentives:   Drivers earned rewards for completing modules and adhering to safe driving practices. These rewards included accidental insurance and cash vouchers.
  •   Community Engagement:   The app fostered a sense of community among truck drivers. They could share safety tips, success stories, and support one another.

Impact

Hindustan Unilever's Safe Driving Education and Rewards Program achieved remarkable results:

1. Improved Road Safety: Incidents of accidents and traffic violations involving Hindustan Unilever's partnered truck drivers decreased significantly.
