New online risk assessments launching soon

Fleet training supplier E-Training World will be launching a new, expanded, range of online driver and rider risk assessments this autumn.

From September, companies will be able to access three new programmes targeted at motorbike riders, emergency services drivers and minibus drivers.

The skills specific additions come at a time when online driver risk assessments are accelerating in demand and follow on from the launch of E-Training World’s HGV assessment earlier this year.

“We’re making excellent progress with the development of these new assessments,” commented Jonathan Mosley (pictured), director of sales and marketing.

“And the reason we’ve decided to announce them in advance is because we are keen to hear from any organisations operating these types of vehicles who may wish to share with us their own particular experiences concerning at-work drivers and riders.”

Mosley explains that all of the E-Training World systems are skills and knowledge-based, and have been developed by driver trainers, road safety officers and experts in each particular field.

They follow a proven structure of assessing attitude, knowledge, concentration and observation, and hazard perception – all of which result in individual risk ratings per section, and an overall driver rating of high, medium or low.

“If fleet managers, or health and safety managers, wish to share their experiences of driver risk and the types of incidents that are causing them the greatest problems we would be pleased to hear from them during the development stages.

“We may also be looking for assistance with the system trials prior to launch from one or two fleet operators.”
