A Driver Risk Assessment enables you to assess and mitigate potential high-risk scenarios before a driver gets behind the wheel. 62% of all work-related fatalities are related to vehicles making driving one of the most high-risk tasks in the workplace. This is why it is essential to proactively assess risks and prevent potential accidents. A Driver Risk Assessment is often a checklist/survey that assesses the driver’s well-being, the road and weather conditions, and location. This can give you clarity on if it is safe for the driver to commence the travel.
Whilst it can be useful for anyone that drives for work, the risk assessment is essential for longer drives and driving in remote or high-risk areas. We recommend completing the risk assessment before commencing your travel so that users understand the risks involved, unnecessary travel can be avoided, and any actions can be taken to mitigate existing risks.
Users can fill out the form online through an interactive PDF and email the results to their supervisors. Or similarly, you can print the form and fill by hand. Then following the risk matrix at the end of the document, calculate the risk score by adding up the answers. If the results indicate low risk, the planned travel can go on ahead without review. However if medium-high risk, we suggested that a supervisor reviews the journey and makes considerations such as:
Is the travel necessary?
What steps could we make to mitigate the high risks? (e.g. is a passenger viable? Would a different travel date have improved weather conditions, should they use a GPS device for out of coverage communication)
Does this person have high experience travelling in these conditions?
