The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has agreed a deal with Fujitsu UK to develop a web application that will assess the company’s fleet drivers.
RoSPA Fleet Safety will be developing its current Driver Profiler application into a bespoke tool for Fujitsu, which will work with and alongside its existing learning management system.
Driver Profiler is RoSPA’s online psychometric risk assessment tool, which measures the user’s attitudes towards driving, providing insights into the risk they pose and allowing managers and trainers to decide on appropriate training.
The tool takes into account demographic risk factors and the results of the user’s psychometric test to give them a risk rating, telling them which areas of their driving are high-risk and need improving.
Once integrated with Fujitsu’s current learning management system, through making it SCORM-compliant, the software will risk assess the company’s drivers before providing them with the appropriate e-learning training. This will mitigate their risk, and help the company to meet its health and safety objectives and best practice.
Frances Richardson, director of operations for RoSPA, said: “We are very excited by this new contract, as it is an innovation for RoSPA, enabling our already popular driver assessor software content to be used by a much more significant number of people.
“It is particularly good to be helping a world-class company like Fujitsu, which is so committed to responsible business operations, to make their drivers safer.”
Simon Head, head of health and safety at Fujitsu, said: “We are proud to form a partnership with RoSPA to further develop our managing occupational road risk and overall health and safety processes.
“Health and safety is a fundamental part of Fujitsu and its responsible business programme and we are continually looking to develop our best practice processes.”
Fujitsu has been named Responsible Business of the Year at Business in the Community’s 2015 Annual Responsible Business Gala in London.
The award recognised Fujitsu’s role in effectively influencing others to collaborate and create the conditions for long-term sustainable change. The organisation was commended for embedding sustainability into its business strategy, displayed exceptional leadership and reach within and beyond its own sector to help build the wider movement of responsible business.
