Driver Risk Profiling
As part of the process to manage workplace road-risk you must determine the extent to which the individual (employee) poses a risk.
It’s unwise to assume that because someone has a full driving licence their driving does not pose a risk to your business. Almost on a daily basis we encounter a variety of driving manoeuvres that are undoubtedly questionable. These place the driver and other road users at risk, however, most drivers do not set out on a journey to drive aggressively or unsafely, but being human, mistakes are inevitable.
TTC DriverProtect® will profile your driver risk, identifying:
- Drivers who pose a risk to your business;
- Drivers who are secretly thrill seeking risk-taking individuals;
- Drivers who have a genuine desire to drive safely but would benefit from knowledge or practical skills development.
The only sure way to gain an in-depth understanding of each driver is to carry out driver risk profiling, this means taking a number of factors into consideration such as:
- The type of vehicle used;
- The number of miles driven;
- The age of the driver;
- The drivers experience including when they passed their driving test;
- The drivers knowledge and understanding of the rules of the road;
- The drivers propensity to take risks;
- The drivers hazard awareness skills;
- The drivers reaction skills;
- The drivers accident and penalty point history.
Tackling the above is an arduous and time-consuming task unless some kind of driver risk-profiling tool is used, such as TTC DriverProtect®.
TTC DriverProtect® takes the hassle out of this task and paves the way for businesses to manage this important aspect with ease.
