School bus drivers play a critical role in the lives of our children, our education system, and our communities as a whole. The most precious cargo one could carry is our children, so safety should be of paramount importance.
What if we told you that a driver’s abstract is not enough? An abstract only looks at what has happened, not the risk of what could happen.
What if we told you a standard medical exam is not enough? Most driver medical exams do not test for cognitive impairment.
Test for cognitive impairment to ensure your drivers are the safest on the road.
The DriveABLE Advantage
RETAIN EMPLOYEES LONGER:
DriveABLE can pre-screen new employees to determine their cognitive driving ability. Recruited individuals with higher weighted cognitive skills were more likely to stay on the job longer (Transportation Research Board, 2011). With a current shortage of commercial drivers, DriveABLE can help you decrease turnover rates.
MAXIMIZE SAFETY AND REDUCE RISKS:
As age increases so does the risk of having a medical condition that will affect driving ability. Many commercial drivers are 55 years or older, in this age group risk of driving injury or fatality increases by 75%. DriveABLE Assessments can help reduce the risk of close calls, accidents, liability costs, and keep safe drivers driving longer.
REDUCE TRAINING AND RECRUITMENT COSTS:
Save significant amount of time, money, and energy on fruitless training and recruitment (refer to ETS case study). DriveABLE tools can be quickly and efficiently incorporated into annual training and health, and safety routines.
