Time Pressure and Driver Risk

12 March 2020

Driving for Better Business partner DriverMetrics has published a new white paper addressing Time Pressure and Driver Risk.

With research demonstrating that time-related demands are associated with higher stress levels and near-accidents, time pressure is a key issue for managers responsible for employee driver safety.

Written by DriverMetrics Research Director, Dr Lisa Dorn, the white paper explains how time pressure influences driver behaviour at work and the relationship between time pressure, driver stress, performance and crashes.

A series of recommendations are provided to enable fleet managers to more effectively mitigate time pressure risk from a behavioural and organisational perspective.

Time Pressure and Driver Risk is now available via free download on the DriverMetrics website.
