Overview

Overview

The DriverMetrics Profiling and eLearning Programme (DMP) is a unique and scientifically-tested online assessment tool designed to address the behavioural and motivational factors associated with crash involvement. The course provides an individual assessment of GAC drivers and suggests behavioural change interventions through in-depth eLearning modules.

Published research demonstrates employees who complete this course improve their knowledge, attitudes and behaviours in driving, and has shown a drastic reduction in company accidents.

Content

Content

The course consists of two parts:

  1. Driver profiling (Driver Risk Index) – in which the driver’s profile is assessed based on several critical behavioural factors including aggression, work related risk, driving excitement, age, annual mileage, crash history, ineffective coping strategies and susceptibility to fatigue.
  2. eLearning – designed to address the behavioural and motivational factors associated with being involved in a crash and to improve knowledge, attitudes and skill in driving. It is based on the latest fleet safety research, with modules tailored to the outputs of the Driver Risk Index. The learning is a ‘scenarios-based approach’ which is designed to encourage the driver to consider the consequences of their actions and self-reflect on their driving behaviours. The course concludes with a built-in assessment questionnaire, which if drivers fails, they can retake to ensure they have understood the content and increase their risk awareness.

DMP is delivered in a self-paced format using the DriverMetrics portal and can be completed in under two-hours.

It is the expectation of the GAC Group Management that all GAC employees are provided with sufficient time to complete the core requirements of each course within working hours. In order to establish higher results, participants are encouraged to fully complete all activities, and additional personal time may be required outside of working hours.
