Driving Awareness

04/08/08

Half of the Lost Time accidents to Bureau Veritas employees can be attributed to incidents while driving. The Corporate Quality, Health, Safety and Environment Department is sponsoring a campaign aiming at identifying Drivers profile and Driving attitude of our employees. Once the profile and attitude are known, training needs will be identified and appropriate instruction given, said Yves-Arnaud Peres, Group Chief Quality Officer.

For that purpose, 2,000 licenses for an online self assessment have been purchased. They will be implemented in 4 pilot countries (Australia, Spain, France and Brazil) and in 2 Divisions (Consumer Product Services and Government Services & International Trade).

The project was launched in 2007 in the UK because the increase in number of accidents has resulted in an increase in both insurance and operating costs, as well as a reduction in productivity. To tackle these issues, a driver handbook was given to all drivers of Bureau Veritas cars and commercial vehicle. An online Driver Risk Assessment was rolled out and those drivers identified as high risk were given dedicated training. Bureau Veritas employee's safety when driving is important. 839 drivers are registered in the online program and 469 have already completed the full assessment. All high mileage drivers and those with high accident rates have been identified and will be receiving driver training, explains Harry Button, Risk Director, Bureau Veritas UK.

This successful experience led the Group QHSE Department to widen the initiative within the Group.

Antoine Lesieur, in charge of the Driving Awareness project, is quite satisfied with the first results of the program's second phase and concludes: Driving Awareness is a tool that will allow us to identify populations at risk and to implement the appropriate training.
