Drive Safely – Whatever the Weather
- Date: Monday 9th March 2009
SSG Training and Consultancy are reminding local companies of the dangers posed by extreme weather conditions, in particular the challenges faced by those involved in work-related driving.
Driving in adverse weather conditions inevitably leads to more accidents. Human error and dangerous driving compound the risk posed by fog, snow, icy roads, strong and gusty winds, heavy rain and floods.
Government sponsored research estimates that up to a third of all road traffic accidents involve someone who is at work at the time. This equates to over 20 fatalities and 250 serious injuries every week.
Training is the proven, most effective method of reducing a driver\'s risk of accident. As human factors contribute to around 95% of road traffic accidents, training needs to be tailored to a driver\'s strengths and weaknesses.
SSG Software Solutions has developed an effective interactive tool DriverSafe that profiles driver behaviour, attitude and driving habits in the form of a Driver Risk Assessment. Based on the assessment, training can then be adapted to suit individual requirements.
