All businesses with fleets have a responsibility to manage occupational road risk. However, we understand that this might be challenging, particularly when companies have many employees who are distributed across multiple locations nationwide. In such instances, providing all these drivers with on-road training might be difficult. By providing online access, we can make it easy for your drivers to undergo assessment and training at any time of any day with minimal administration on your part, contributing towards your legal compliance.
We are currently offering companies the opportunity to put drivers through one of our hazard tests via our Hazard Skills Snapshot package. Your drivers can undertake our scientifically validated hazard test via a secure online link. Each driver will be taken through a series of questions that will include their driver history, followed by a short video-based hazard awareness test. The assessment will be followed by a short training module. In this, each driver will see the clips for a second time, with safety-relevant areas of the scene highlighted to show drivers where they should have been looking, while an expert voice-over will explain why they should have been looking in those areas. A detailed report of drivers' performance on the test will be provided to you, including a classification of each driver according to their future crash risk allowing you to see gaps in knowledge and to highlight key areas for future mitigation of collision risk.
Esitu is currently developing an online portal where drivers will be able to access assessments and training via a computer, tablet or mobile phone. After finishing an assessment, drivers will receive a risk rating, which will automatically be adjusted when they complete further assessment or training modules. We will also be offering a wide range of other video-based e-learning modules (e.g., speed awareness, gap acceptance, traffic flow, over-taking etc). Drivers will also be automatically recommended targeted training modules based on their perform on assessments. You will also be able to make specific learning modules mandatory if required. All of the assessments and training modules will be tailored to the type of vehicle they drive at your company and to their individual on-road job. Managers will be able to track individual drivers progress, as well as the collective risk of all drivers through interactive yet simple to understand dashboards.
