Trevor Parkin EMT Operational Standards
Having a system that allows my driver management team to spend more time with their drivers and less time on admin is key to managing our operational risks. Using EDS means we are now properly assessing our risk in total, as well as supporting and developing our people.
The level of visibility and assurance the EDS system provides is excellent, as it removes the opportunity for administration errors through its intelligent design and gives real time reporting of both compliance against standards, and the quality of the assessments. The reporting outputs are key, as just knowing the detail about how assessors are grading their teams is a powerful tool to drive improvement and consistency within the business.
EDS has been a step change in the way we manage and assess our Drivers' competence. Assessments can be planned more robustly and are carried out with all information for the Driver immediately to hand. For identifying and managing risk areas within our Driver team and therefore reducing the potential for operating incidents, EDS brings huge benefits to our business
