In partnership with DriverMetrics, Agility Fleet provides access to the Fleet Driver Risk Index (FDRI™), which is an online driver risk management system.
What is FDRI™?
Every year the lives of almost 1.24 million people are cut short as a result of a road traffic crash.
Between 20 to 50 million more people suffer non-fatal injuries, with many incurring a disability as a result of their injury.
Road traffic crashes are the biggest cause of death and injury at work. In this dangerous driving environment, we all have the potential to be involved in a crash. Research has demonstrated that the way we think and feel when driving is directly linked to how we respond to situations on the road.
The Fleet Driver Risk Index™ has been developed to help you understand the extent to which your driving actions may increase your potential of being involved in an incident.
How does the FDRI™ work?
The Fleet Driver Risk Index™ is based on 25 years of scientific research into driver behaviour. You will be asked a range of questions about your experience when driving for work.
Your responses will be used to determine your individual driving behaviour profile in relation to how thousands of other drivers have responded. Your profile will highlight areas of strengths and areas where you need to be aware of increased risks based on how you generally respond to different situations.
Once you start the online assessment you will complete four sections where you will be asked a series of questions about yourself and your driving experiences. This normally takes around 20 minutes.
A comprehensive report will be developed based on your responses. The report contains a detailed explanation of your levels of driver risk in relation to the major risk factors for company drivers. The report also contains information that can help you to stay safe when driving for work.
Once the data is compiled, unique coaching interventions directly linked to the FDRI assessments are developed. This addresses the risks and behaviours identified and can be performed in various methods including; e-learning, driver coaching and/or driver workshops. All details have been developed by Cranfield University who have 25 years research experience and 70 academic research papers, with over 100,000 profiles completed. There is nationwide coverage of accredited and highly experienced coaches.
