Companies that operate, or manage, fleets across several countries can now achieve a consistent approach to risk assessing their drivers irrespective of which country they operate in.
According to Graham Hurdle, managing director of leading fleet risk assessment and training company E-Training World, organisations that run international fleets should seek a common approach to risk assessing their drivers so that risk levels can be benchmarked between countries.
However, to achieve this requires a system that allows risk measurement to remain constant and comparable while the question sets and content need to be tailored to each individual nation and its local driving laws.
“Our online system offers a tried and tested approach to risk assessing drivers,” explained Graham. “However, it is also flexible enough for different languages, road signs, imagery, traffic laws, and question sets to be added.
“This means that businesses which manage or operate fleets across multiple countries can offer the same risk assessment platform to all drivers, but the assessment itself is meaningful to drivers in their country of residence.”
In addition, Graham also explains that fleet operators can also adapt E-Training World’s online driver training system to any nation of their choice.
“Through our e-modules, which are tailored bursts of highly focused online training, any topic can be addressed in any language. You can also add video explanations, which means if a company wanted to add a video clip explaining to drivers how to conduct vehicle checks, for example, in Polish it could do so with ease.”
