The Ambulance Driver Risk Index™

The Ambulance Driver Risk Index™ is an online driver risk assessment that identifies specific behaviours that increase the risk of driving an ambulance. It takes less than 20 minutes to complete, with each driver receiving a report. The report summarises the results and provides tailored advice on how to improve driver safety.

Risk Factors

Scores across several key risk factors are used to create an individual report for every driver.

Situational Risk Factors

• Age • Annual Mileage • Driving Hours • Driving Experience • Licence Status • Crash History

Behavioural & Coping Risk Factors

• Aggression • Hazard Monitoring • Thrill Seeking  • Driving Fatigue • Anxiety • Confrontation • Task Focus • Emotional coping • Reappraisal coping • Avoidance coping

The Driver Risk Index™ is the subject of over 90 published academic papers. It has reliably been shown that the scales measure personality-based emotional responses to driving. These scales are associated with crashes, errors, driver behaviours and reactions behind the wheel.

“Though coaching was something my colleagues and I were doing, we
never really understood it or used it to anywhere near its potential. The
DriverMetrics® Coaching Programme undoubtedly gave us a better
understanding of coaching and unlocked even further potential. These
were realised, and evidenced when we implemented DriverMetrics®
within our service and propelled the driver training department to provide
a far more effective resource to service.”
