Slip and Fall Claims

GPS Tracking Canada


The Geotab GPS tracking system is the BEST defense against Slip and Fall Claims.

In many ways, the Geotab GPS tracking system has an excellent reputation in the Snow Removal industry. It is especially useful with regards to slip and fall claims. The very detailed way that Geotab handles trips histories in reports as well as graphically, Snow Removal companies can rely on it to present the truth of their actions.

Here below is an actual image from a Snow Removal client, which he provided to his insurance company to defend against a slip and fall claim, by showing the actual date and time of entry and exit from a parking lot.
Note the time stamp is very accurate, showing the exact second that the vehicle entered and exited.  This level of detail is critical in a defense against a slip and fall claim.  Visually, the Geotab GPS tracking system shows data logging down to one second of accuracy, however the system records data down to 1/100th of one second of accuracy, should this granular level of data be required for accident reconstruction.
The Geotab GPS tracking system can also produce a report showing a sensor activity, such as a plow or salter (sander), when optionally connected to a sensor adapter.
The sensor status report would show:

  • date
  • time
  • sensor on / off
  • address

Ie. for plow it would show plow up or plow down and
for salter it would show salter on or salter off.
