Risk profiling can help reinforce safer driving for employees, says E-Training World
So says Jonathan Mosley, sales and marketing director of E-Training World, who adds that conducting an assessment causes drivers to think more about their own driving, raises awareness in their minds of many areas that pose a risk whilst driving and helps them learn – even during the assessment process.
“It’s a myth to think that the risk assessment is purely designed to find out what training a driver requires,” said Mosley.
“The assessment process itself is helping drivers understand many of the key factors that underpin safe driving, including attitude, knowledge, concentration/observation and hazard perception skills.
“As a result, we get great feedback from drivers saying that they learned a great deal just from being assessed, and we see it as the moment when drivers start to behave differently on the road, driving with greater awareness, a better attitude and more safely – all of which is a great step forward in reducing accidents and costs.”
