Fatality Notice: IHSA has learned of a construction-related fatality in Sudbury involving a construction worker securing a transport trailer load. One workplace fatality is one too many, regardless of the sector, industry, or occupation. Please take a moment to think about those who have died or been injured on the job and re-establish a commitment to the prevention of injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.

In-Cab Coaching and Evaluation

The investment in vehicle equipment is a frozen asset until a driver gets behind the wheel. A professional driver evaluation is designed to determine the skill and safety performance of drivers. The evaluation process measures a driver’s ability to perform a driving task while interacting with traffic and environmental conditions.



An evaluation is developed consisting of all available driving environments that the driver might encounter, including rural, residential, suburban, urban, and freeway. The route is divided into evaluation and recording zones. Test sequences will be developed for each environment incorporating two to four driving tasks within each sequence. Each sequence will present the driver with a traffic problem that requires judgment and a decision to resolve.

Five steps are followed in developing the test sequence.

  • 1. Diagram the test sequence.
  • 2. Divide the test sequence into driving tasks.
  • 3. List the driving tasks required.
  • 4. Record existing hazards.
  • 5. Record potential hazards.

Recording is done at the end of each test sequence. Comments from each test sequence are compiled and documented on the overall evaluation report.


What is the Evaluator Looking for?

  • The driver’s ability to recognize hazards and to adjust to conditions
  • Good vision practices
  • Road management techniques
  • Maintaining a safe following distance
  • Defensive attitude.

The evaluation process will be customized to suit the needs of the client based on vehicle type and environments encountered.
