Risk Screening Process for Drivers

There are a significant number of road accidents and fatalities involving construction traffic.

To help prevent this, sites should raise awareness of road safety amongst staff.

Site managers should also be aware of busy areas such as schools, or blind spots round corners, which may cause potential danger for pedestrians, cyclists or other road users.

Safety should always remain at the forefront of everyone’s mind, with sites striving to attain the maximum in safety performance. Even a momentary lapse in concentration could cost lives within a site environment, so all staff must remain vigilant and safety aware.

To ensure that drivers remained focused on road safety, this site implemented the following:

  • Operatives took part in a proactive risk screening process to support safe driving;
  • They also completed an associated training programme run by Roadmarque;
  • Driver checks were carried out, which included validity of driving licences, insurance and frequency of own fault accidents;
  • High number of endorsements and high business mileage were tracked against targets set for the company;
  • Personnel were required to undertake appropriate online assessment modules;
  • If necessary, staff were requested to undergo further training, in the form of a module issued on CD.
