Praxis42 launch new Driver Awareness training and Assessment tool
Posted by Tracy Seward
Praxis42 is delighted to announce the release of our new Driver Awareness eLearning course, which is complemented by the Driver Assessment system.
It is estimated that more than a quarter of all road traffic accidents involve somebody who is driving as part of their work. Health and safety law applies to drive at work in the same way that is done to all other work activities. There is extensive guidance for employers to ensure that their health and safety management system considers road risk. Managing driver risk as part of your health and safety arrangements is therefore essential and should include vehicles that are owned by employees and used for work as well as those provided by the organisation.
The course has been designed to help employees become more aware of their responsibilities while driving on behalf of their employer and remind them of some of the important aspects of road safety while at work. The ultimate objective is to reinforce safe driving behaviour and identify and influence any poor driving habits that employees may have developed.
To complement the training the Driver Assessment+ tool has been developed to facilitate managers in assessing and authorising employees and their vehicles for driving at work. The Driver Assessment + (DA+) has a self-authoring content management system which allows organisations to create compliance and risk assessment templates that aid in the evaluation of risk. The findings from the assessment can then be used by managers to authorise or restrict drivers via a well-designed risk management system.
Mike Stevens, New Product Development Director at Praxis42 is delighted with the new driver awareness course and risk assessment tool, commenting that “Our customers have been asking us to help them with the management of road risk both in terms of awareness training and also with undertaking risk assessments of their drivers. What we have produced is an interactive, informative and helpful reminder for drivers that will make them reflect on their actions and behaviours when driving at work. For employers, we have developed a self-content managed online risk assessment and driver authorisation tool that improves compliance and meets the intent of the HSE and DFT guidance. Grey fleet management now becomes a whole lot easier”
