Many fleet managers have a gut feeling about who their worst drivers are but in truth, the reasoning behind that feeling can often be subjective and anecdotal, sometimes it is arrived at through personal experience but rarely is it based on incontrovertible empirical risk management evidence?
The reason is because it is actually quite difficult to ensure that the correct drivers are selected for the correct reasons and that the correct remedial action is applied because in all organisations there are forces in play that can often prevent accuracy and fair play.
So, the questions to ask in order to get this right should include:
In addition to these questions, a fleet must rely on the broadest set of measures before investing in driver training because multi-source inputs to decision-making will demonstrate patterns, confirm or deny any subjective thoughts and remove any objections from the driver.
