Praxis42 Launch Driver Awareness eLearning and Driver Assessment System
Posted by Tracy Seward
Praxis42 will be launching a Driver Awareness eLearning course as well as a Driver Assessment tool at the Safety and Health Exhibition that will help enable organisations to successfully manage driver risk.
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 driving at work in the same way that is does 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 Praxis42 Driver Awareness training, the Driver Assessment+ tool has also been developed to facilitate managers in assessing and authorising employees for the use of their vehicles for 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 and authorisation of 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, “We have spent time with our customers listening to what they have to say about the challenges they face in managing road risk with their company and grey fleets. The result is that our solution is flexible, simple to deploy, easy to manage and provides employers with the management control they require”
The course and assessment system is being showcased by Praxis42 on stand O2350 at the Safety and Health Expo at the Excel on June 17th, 18th and 19th. Come along to arrange a free demonstration or to discuss setting up a small pilot project in your organisation. Click here to register your interest
