Fluid is a key part of CCS’s commitment to safety excellence. Fluid Mobility ensures that every vehicle undergoes a safety check before leaving the yard, as required by the driver’s license. This protects both the public and the driver from potential hazards. 

With Fluid, drivers can spend more time on the road and less time in the shop or dealing with traffic violations. Fluid also provides driving alerts to help drivers follow the speed limit and respect the safety of the communities where CCS operates.

The Problem

With people and assets performing rugged, intensive manual work with heavy equipment and powerlines, CCS’s line of work is fraught with safety concerns. From excavators, fibre optics installation vehicles, and power tools, CCS has a diverse range of equipment and assets with unique maintenance and usage requirements. 

Providing hydro excavation, fiber services, and construction services, CCS has employees often working isolated in remote locations across rural Canada. Being able to monitor the environment and wellbeing of individual workers to provisioning them with up-to-date information is essential to CCS providing a safe, reliable service.
