Amey selects Applied Driving Techniques as risk management partner

Amey selects Applied Driving Techniques to implement a risk management programme

Infrastructure support services provider Amey has appointed Applied Driving Techniques (ADT) to implement a risk management programme for its 12,000 car and van drivers within the UK and Ireland.

ADT will provide a fully-managed solution that covers all road risk assessments, licence checking and targeted driver training to further support the programme aimed at improving the safety culture within Amey.

The risk assessments will cover four areas of fleet safety – driver, driver attitude, journey and vehicle – to enable ADT to analyse results and identify employees’ exposure to risk.

Real-time and historical data will enable fleet performance to be analysed and highlight areas of performance improvement.

Targeted training and learning programmes will be developed based on the results of the risk assessments, the culture of Amey’s business, and clearly defined safety objectives.

It will combine a range of options including e-learning, in-vehicle/simulator training and classroom work, which will be tailored to the individual needs of the driver and monitored on an ongoing basis to measure success.

ADT has also introduced an electronic licence monitoring service to ensure that employees are legally entitled to drive and also to reduce the administrative workload associated with licence checking.

Additionally, a grey fleet management service will confirm that employees who drive their own vehicle on work-related journeys are doing so in a compliant manner. This will include a series of checks covering the vehicle, maintenance, insurance, legality and documentation.

Tom Lawless, fleet and plant director at Amey, said: “We have worked closely with ADT to create a wide-ranging and innovative programme that is closely aligned with our safety objectives.

"ADT’s targeted, flexible and managed approach means we are able to overcome the varying challenges of different driver groups to maximise results.

"This will enable Amey to build on its commitment to occupational road risk and ensure we are working with a partner that shares our values."
