Risk Assessment and Driver Training

Identifying risk drivers and changing behaviour

TMC can provide risk assessments and driver training for your drivers.

The services we provide are:

  • Driver Risk Assessment: This is where the employee completes a risk assessment.
  • Online Driver Training: Modules agreed following the completion of the Driver Risk Assessment.
  • On the Road Training: Following the results of the Driver Risk Assessment and the Online Driver Training.
  • Driver Behaviour Data: Using data from the TMC app and the various telematics providers, we get the driver behaviour scores for speeding, harsh braking, harsh acceleration, harsh corner and phone distractions/usage. These scores will then give the driver an overall score.

Risk Assessments

We can undertake risk assessments of anyone who drives on behalf of your business.

All drivers need to complete an initial online assessment which covers four main areas of fleet safety:

  1. The Driver: age, licence, physical attributes (e.g. eyesight and illnesses)
  2. Driver Attitude: speed, laws of the road, other road users, phone use.
  3. The Journey: length, time, roads used, breaks.
  4. The Vehicle: age, condition, engine size, ABS/ESP.

After the initial risk assessment, the below steps will follow:

  1. Report: a report will be produced after 80% completion, which provides an audit for compliance with policy.
  2. Risk Category: drivers will be placed into a risk category which will indicate the level of training required.
  3. Training: targeted training interventions will be enabled, based on the risk category of each driver.

Online Driver Training

Following the risk assessment, the majority of training needs are accommodated by on-line training modules. We have a suite of over 27 e-learning modules, available in over 107 countries, with local video footage and 76 languages. It also works across multiple platforms.

We will categorise by low, medium, and high risk drivers, and they will receive training appropriate for their group:

  • Low Risk Drivers: not required to complete any training
  • Medium Risk Drivers: will likely receive two or three on-line modules appropriate to the risks identified during the risk assessment
  • High Risk Drivers: will be recommended to sit an online Hazard Perception Evaluation Test. On completion, the user will receive a number of short targeted modules based on their results.

On the Road Driver Training

In-vehicle training may be an appropriate control measure for very high risk drivers. These individual drivers will be identified flagged during the risk assessment.

The in-vehicle training these drivers will undertake will be unique according to their needs as identified by our assessments. This may vary from driver to driver, and will be constructed so that it focuses on areas that they need to improve in order to become more safe and compliant drivers.

We can also provide bespoke training courses for new employees and specialist driving roles.
