The 2020 AfMA Fleet Safety Award won by UEM Edgenta.
UEM Edgenta continuously ensure proactive approach to the safety of the Company’s fleet vehicles.
Full Release: Kuala Lumpur, 10 December 2020 – UEM Edgenta Berhad (“UEM Edgenta” or the “Company”), the region’s leading Asset Management and Infrastructure Solutions company continues its excellence in health, safety, security and environment (“HSSE”) management by receiving an international recognition, the 2020 Australasian Fleet Management Association (“AfMA”) Fleet Safety Award, at a virtual ceremony today.

The 2020 AfMA Fleet Award is an annual premier event celebrating fleet excellence across the industry. This year, it has recognised UEM Edgenta’s proactive approach to fleet safety and its demonstration of a strong safety management culture in mitigating risks and elevating safety parameters for its people and fleet operations.

The Company’s approach and utilisation of technology applications have resulted in drastic reduction in fuel consumption, accidents and speed violations by 98% within a span of seven months since its initiation.

Through the GPS system and enforcement of its safety policies, the Company’s fleet management is able to analyse trends and feed data in real-time to UEM Edgenta’s Command & Contact Centre (“CnC”) in Kuala Lumpur, functioning as the central node of information for the Company. This allows for effective monitoring of the vehicle’s safety condition and assessment of the driver’s compliance to speed on the road.

In addition, as one of the concessionaires managing Healthcare Support Services (“HSS”) at 34 Ministry of Health’s (“MoH”) hospitals in Malaysia under its care, UEM Edgenta also implemented the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (“TPMS”) for the entire hospitals’ ambulance fleet to monitor tyre pressure and temperature to maximise safety on the road and better manage maintenance costs.

Upon the detection of any anomalies, the system will notify users for an immediate tyre inspection. The system helps to ensure the recommended tyre pressure is used based on the vehicle load and speed index. The vehicles’ stability is also achieved with the correct tyre pressure and balancing, with optimum tyre pressure consistently applied to the vehicles.

“Our strong advocacy towards HSSE over the years and consistent engagement with our stakeholders has reduced the issues and risks associated with vehicles and fleet operations. I commend the team’s tireless efforts resulting in this prestigious recognition. With a dedication to the Edgenta ethos, the team always puts safety as the utmost priority. Without the support of our dedicated team and employees, we would not be able to achieve this wonderful award,” said Syahrunizam Samsudin, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Edgenta.

“As stewards of human health and well-being, and with an aspiration to be a global leader in the asset and facilities management space, we are committed to continue to invest in environmental, social, and corporate governance (“ESG”) efforts aligned to our mission, while also driving long term growth and profitability,” added Syahrunizam.
