RoSPA’s Popular Driver Profiler Tool Upgraded

New version will be unveiled to the public for the first time on RoSPA’s stand (M300) at Safety & Health Expo

RoSPA’s highly-popular Driver Profiler fleet risk assessment tool is being relaunched today (Thursday, June 15) with a host of new features and updates.

The new version will be unveiled to the public for the first time on RoSPA’s stand (M300) at the Safety & Health Expo at London’s ExCeL Arena on Tuesday, but is available to clients from today.

Used regularly by a range of RoSPA’s fleet clients, the online tool is designed to measure the attitude and behaviour of drivers via a questionnaire that investigates the individual’s history and the type of driving they do.

With questions designed by RoSPA’s in-house road safety experts and meeting HSE guidelines on risk assessing all drivers, Driver Profiler is ideal for those who manage fleet risk as part of their role. It risk assesses the driver’s approach to certain situations such as distractions, speed, dealing with pressure and journey planning, before detailing ways drivers can improve.

The new version has been made more user-friendly, and includes new features such as:

  • Keeping all of your drivers’ assessments on the same account;
  • A reporting function which enables users to view, filter and export data;
  • Ability to add your own questions to the tool and set your own deadlines for completion;
  • Ability to add and update your company logo.

Eleanor Pugh-Stanley, RoSPA’s fleet safety development manager, said: “Around one-third of all deaths on the road each year involve those who are driving for work. This is a shocking statistic, and one that all fleet managers must to help drive down.

“Driver Profiler is a cost-effective and time-efficient tool compared to in-vehicle assessments, which help managers to prioritise training for drivers, of any vehicle type, who need it most. It’s a great first step to help you manage your occupational road risk.”

Accidents are the biggest threat to you and your family for most your life. In fact, more than 14,000 people die as a result of accidents across the UK each year, while thousands more are maimed and millions are injured. Businesses are ruined. Families are devastated. Children grow up without parents, parents without children. Yet despite the scale and severity of the problem, accidents are still too often discussed with a shrug of the shoulders. There is a pervasive belief amongst some people that accidents are somehow inevitable. That they can't be stopped. Imagine if we took the same attitude towards child abuse. Or cancer. For almost 100 years, RoSPA has been quietly working behind the scenes to change both legislation and attitudes surrounding accidents. From the compulsory wearing of seatbelts and the campaign to stop drink driving, to the Cycling Proficiency Test and to the more recent ban on handheld mobile phones behind the wheel, RoSPA has been instrumental in shaping our society for the better, preventing millions of deaths and serious injuries along the way. As a registered charity, we are committed to continuing this legacy of change.
