Risk Assessments

I have just had an email from a fairly large local company asking if I do driver Risk Assessment.  Currently I just do the normal, L drivers, pass plus and refresher courses.  I don't want to turn down this potential income, but just wondered what should be involved in Risk Assessment, and should I have any extra qualifications?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm guessing this might be an area for the fleet training guys: but interested to know the answer too: hence my worthless reply.

I have now moved this into the Fleet Trainers section, perhaps you will get more of a response now.  wink

Re: Risk Assessments

Strictly speaking I'm pretty sure you don't need to be anything other than an ADI (and there's even some debate about whether a risk assessment is anything to do with driving instruction!).

However I would recommend that if you do take it on you do a Fleet course and get yourself on the DSA Fleet Driver Trainers register.

In it's simplest form a driver risk assessment would involve checking their eyesight and driver's licence (and entitlements depending on what they were being asked to drive), then assessing their knowledge of driving risks and the way that they drive. I would suggest that you ask them what they want from their risk assessments and then devise a course for them.

They may want all of their drivers risk assessed in order to devise a training programme for them, or it may simply be that they want their new employees risk assessed as they are taken on.

Bear in mind that a risk assessment will not make anyone any safer in itself (though it may open their eyes and cause them to change the way they drive slightly), and really needs to be combined with or followed up by good quality training.

Hope this helps as a starter, and I'm sure others will add to this.

Re: Risk Assessments

Just Google "Occupational Road Risk Assessment".

Without wishing to appear confrontational, if you don't know what a "Risk Assessment" actually is, then you are probably not yet qualified to provide one.

Re: Risk Assessments

At the moment the fleet register is voluntary, though many companies will insist on the fleet qualification.  It sounds as if this company isn't aware of the different qualifications.

I am not going to suggest you wouldn't be capable of delivering the training, but there is some validity in Percy's comment.  Do some reading up and then see if it is something you want to get involved in.  If it is, then I would start looking at getting fleet registered.

Good luck

Its not that I don't know what a risk assesment is, it was just whether I had to be 'qualified' in any way.  It seems that fleet training would be the way to go, if I'm going to do it I want to be able to do it properly.

Re: Risk Assessments

A Fleet Trainer qualification would be a good starting point, then consider taking The NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) Gerneral Certificate. This is a Nationally recognised qualification, be warned though, you will need to work hard to pass.

See the NEBOSH site  for more info http://www.nebosh.org.uk/
