A tailor-made tool is being developed to help keep a firm’s fleet of drivers safe on the road.
The software, which is being developed by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), will be used to assess fleet drivers working for Fujitsu UK.
Fujitsu will be able to use it to carry out risk assessments of its drivers and then provide them with any necessary training.
Software builds on existing app
The move is designed to help the firm meet its health and safety objectives and reduce the risk of its drivers being involved in a road traffic accident.
RoSPA is developing the software from its current Driver Profiler app. It analyses drivers’ attitudes to motoring before providing suggestions about the specific risks they may pose and which areas of their driving need to be improved.
That enables managers to organise appropriate training if it is required.
RoSPA’s director of operations, Frances Richardson, says the deal with Fujitsu will enable its already popular tool to be used to assess and make safer a “much more significant” number of drivers.
Fujitsu’s head of health and safety, Simon Head, says the contract will help the firm improve the way it manages occupational road risk.
