The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has launched a new version of its award winning software, the Driver Profiler.
‘Driver Profiler 20:20’ is designed to assess whether at-work drivers are low, medium, or high risk by measuring psychometric, demographic and behavioural factors that influence driver safety. This allows managers to identify those who are most in need of further training.
The updated package features a shorter question set which takes into account technologies including sat navs and hands-free mobile phones. The questions focus on fatigue, driving under pressure and work distractions.
On completion the driver receives an instant report, which managers are also able to access to see who is at risk and why.
Kevin Clinton, RoSPA’s head of road safety, said: “Driver Profiler 20:20 has been developed through an 18-month research programme involving nearly 2,500 drivers.
“The result is a contemporary driver assessment tool specifically designed for at-work driving which will help employers make the most of limited driver training budgets”.
