New system identifies risk among truck drivers
A company owned by Cranfield University has developed an assessment and profiling system to identify risk among truck drivers.
DriverMetrics has completed the research and development of the LGV Driver Risk Index™ and it is now available for fleets in the UK and internationally.
Based on a comprehensive research project involving hundreds of truck drivers from freight transport companies, the LGV Driver Risk Index™ is an evidence based behavioural risk assessment developed specifically to identify truck driver risk. The resulting driver profile reports enable managers and trainers to implement targeted, behavioural-based interventions to reduce risk.
The LGV Driver Risk Index™ assesses drivers against situational, behavioural, coping and correction factors. The specific behavioural risk factors that are measured are: patient driving, driving excitement, anxious driving, work related risk, driving fatigue, impression management, driver confidence, driving concerns, confrontation, driving focus and self-evaluation.
