Our driver risk profiler e-learning programme is specially designed to assess the ability to identify and minimise driving hazards. It uses real world scenarios to show drivers what they need to be on the alert for on the road.
It specifically targets known and common hazards, preparing drivers for those split-second decisions that can make all of the difference.
The content is approved by Nottingham Trent University.
There were 1,752 fatalities and 25,945 serious injuries due to road accidents in 2019, according to the Department of Transport.
The latest statistics for occupational drivers reveal that over 72,000 work-related road accidents occurred in the UK in 2015/16, according to the Labour Force Survey.
Employers are required to assess any potential hazards that their employees may encounter at work and put in place controls to reduce the risk of that hazard harming the employee to an acceptable level, under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. Moreover, if an employee’s work tasks involve driving, this means all of the potential hazards of operating a vehicle on the road must be assessed and controlled.
This driver risk profiler exercise requires:
- Basic driving knowledge
- No prior certification requirement
The driver risk profiler assessment consists of the following two sections.
The first section consists of 10 short videos of driving scenes that highlight potentially hazardous situations. After each video, the trainee’s understanding and hazard perception are tested based on the video’s content.
The second section contains 10 still images of driving scenes. These images appear in a split second. After each image is shown, the trainee will be asked a question related to it.
