How is safe driving evaluated?

separator-bar-green

We have developed 6 metrics which we collate to come up with a driver safety rating. These have been refined and re-evaluated over time to provide the most accurate representation of what is actually happening on the road.

Acceleration

Deceleration

Speed

Steady Speed

Consistency

Fatigue

The numbers speak for themselves

Below is a study we conducted over an 18 month period in which the monthly average driver Safety Scores were compared with monthly loss ratios of a new client. As the effect of the DriveSmart driver management programme begins to take effect, Safety Scores increase, and loss ratio’s decrease.

Loss Ratio

Find out more >

A client's loss ratio is a function of the value of claims processed versus monthly premium. A low loss ratio is best.

Safety Score

What it is >

A driver's Safety Score is a rating which is calculated based on the 6 metrics (section above) which are measured.

Driver Management

How we do it >

Each of our client's drivers is given direct feedback, information and help on how to drive more safely through our Driver Influencers.

The DriveSmart process

separator-bar-green

Slide 1 Data Capture Driving statistics and data is captured using existing on board computers (OBC's) or in-vehicle monitoring systems (IVMS's). This data is collated and stored for processing. 2 Metric Analysis The data is then analysed using our uniquely designed algorithms to determine the driver Safety Score. This is based on the 6 metrics discussed in the sections above. 3 Driver Management Using the data which has been analysed and converted into easy-to-understand numbers, the drivers are then made aware and coached on how they can improve their driving. This is achieved through effective relationships with our influencers and incentives for safer driving. 4 Reporting Using all the data collected, weekly, monthly and tri-annual reports are generated. Montly reports are either Driver Coaching Reports or Management Reports. Reports include best & worst performers, safety trends and all other notable and useful metrics. 5 Safer Driving As drivers are made more aware of how they can drive more safely and the benefits involved, they take action to improve and in turn reduce your incident rate. They are rewarded further and the cycle continues! Hover the numbers
