What Is The Purpose Of A Driver Risk Assessment?

Our driver risk assessment service is designed to evaluate your employees’ driving ability. This assessment consists of two separate aspects, including a vehicle safety check and a driver evaluation. Through this, we can determine whether your employees can drive for work safely and responsibly. We will provide you with a full report following the assessment, with recommendations for further training where necessary. As an employer, you have a legal obligation to ensure the health and safety of your employees, and those affected by their work, as far as reasonably possible. Health and Safety legislation also applies to employees who drive for work. This highlights the need for driver risk assessments to protect your employees and business. 

Through having your drivers assessed, you can gain insight and a greater understanding of how your drivers use your vehicles. This also helps to ensure that you are satisfying the laws on health and safety. Through gaining an insight into your employees’ driving behaviour, it is possible to identify any potential risks and provide professional training where required. Corporate and fleet driver training can provide access to a wide range of benefits which can help businesses save money and maximise profits.  

What Can A Driver Risk Assessment Do For My Business?

Our driver risk assessment service can be beneficial for businesses of any size. Through identifying potential driver risks, you are protecting your employees and business.  Estimates suggest that  1 in 3 road traffic incidents in the UK  involve those driving for work purposes, at an average cost of £6000 for business each year. In addition to this, there are over 1700 fatalities annually, which highlights the risk employees take when driving for work. Overall, this emphasises the need for driver risk assessments and training. 

Through our driver risk assessments allow us to evaluate your employees driving ability, and highlight any areas where training may be required. Safer drivers deliver better service and limit the risk of an incident occurring.

Our driver risk assessments are bespoke, and tailored to meet the needs of your business and driver availability. This allows us to evaluate and cover a range of topics. All of our risk assessments include a full explanation on Health and Safety when driving for work, and licence, eyesight and vehicle checks. Following our assessment, we will provide you with a full written report, with recommendations. Should further training be required or recommended, we can deliver a range of training courses which can benefit your employees and business. This includes full defensive and fuel-efficient driver training. Our risk assessment service is available across and range of vehicles including, cars, vans, minibuses, buses and truck.
