Driving for better business

A showcase event for the government-backed Driving for Better Business programme was held recently at Cranfield University.

The programme is aimed at developing a network of employers to promote good practice and reduce the frequency and severity of at-work road crashes.

Dr Lisa Dorn who heads up Cranfield’s Driving Research Group, presented the strategies her group has employed to address fleet risk.

These includes the work of DriverMetrics, a Cranfield-owned company that provides the Fleet Driver Risk Index, a psychometric risk assessment used by companies to identify high risk drivers and implement targeted driver training.

Caroline Scurr, Programme Manager of Driving for Better Business said: " Eliminating driving at work accidents is absolutely vital to any company and clearly the work at Cranfield will make an important contribution to our programme."
