Employee Driver Risk Assessment
Hiring an employee is a significantly time consuming and costly process. The selection process often overlooks key indicators that the potential employee has toward risk-taking, aggressive driving and even road rage. Your fleet driver training program should also include ways of determining which employees are higher risk-takers.
One tool to help identify problem driver employees BEFORE hiring is an online screening tool called the Driver Performance Analysis System or DPAS. This well-recognized instrument is the result of over 25 years of research by a traffic safety pioneer named Dr. Jack Weaver.
Dr. Weaver designed, tested and validated the DPAS and although he is no longer with us, the DPAS is now available through our partnership with the United Safety Council.
The DPAS only takes about 30 minutes to administer. His initial work was regularly updated and is now in it’s 7th generation after improvements. It is a validated and easy-to-administer driver assessment that is done entirely online.
The DPAS system is a four-module platform that evaluates driver capabilities by and across these critical dimensions of driving:
- General Knowledge
- Perceptual Skills
- Risk Orientation
- Traffic Procedures
Who is this product for? There are several uses for DPAS. One is to provide pre-employment screening to help determine the likelihood of a crash. Another use is for remedial training in the event the employee has been involved in a crash and could benefit by reinforcement of safe driving practices.
Who can benefit by using the DPAS:
- Insurance Professionals
- Risk Managers
- Fleet Management
- Business Owner
- Human Resources
The DPAS is easy to administer and Eco Fleet Training Solutions can either administer the tracking and monitoring of employee compliance or we can enable you to oversee the implementation.
It’s an affordable way to help you manage your fleet efforts in the following areas:
- Identify High Risk Drivers
- Reduce Crashes
- Improve Rating Process
- Enhance Hiring Decisions
- Reward Low Risk Drivers
- Reduce Claims
- Reduce Liability
- Enhance Profitability
- Improve Driver Abilities
How does the product work? Participants view brief video segments (a total of 100 in all), listen to a statement regarding each scenario and agree or disagree with the statement, within five (5) seconds.
The confluence of crash-contributing scenarios and the rapid decision making requirement, emulates critical aspects of “real-world” driving and accurately projects an individual’s likelihood of being involved in a crash.
The results include a detailed report by individual driver evaluated as well as an export file for an entire organization.
Up to four training videos are then recommended for drivers needing additional training based upon areas identified in the analysis. There is no additional cost for your employees to view any or all of these videos – even if their driver analysis does not reflect the apparent need for additional training.
What is the cost? The DPAS is affordable and pricing starts at $12.00 per individual.We provide discounts for large groups. Ask us for details and pricing. We will be glad to discuss how this product can help you save money in the long run. More information on the DPAS is available here.
