ARM Scores to Driving Accidents and Related Costs
Personnel = 51

PREVENTABLE ACCIDENT COSTS FREQUENCY OF PREVENTABLE ACCIDENTS
PREVENTABLE ACCIDENT COSTS FREQUENCY OF PREVENTABLE ACCIDENTS

51 drivers of a large US national training company completed the ARM Profile. Company driving accidents records on these employees were examined. These records included demographic and driving accident information on each driver, whether each accident was preventable or non-preventable by the driver, and the vehicle damage costs resulting from each accident.

Employees scoring below standards on ARM incurred over 4 times the dollar costs to the company per person in preventable driving accidents as those scoring above standards (t=2.1, p<0.05). Employees scoring below standards were also involved in over 4 times as many preventable driving accidents per person as their couterparts scoring above standards (t=3.0, p<0.01).

In addition, every driver who had been involved in two or more driving accidents were employed by this company below standards
(chi-squared=8.42, df=2, p<0.05). A return on investment of over 2100% was projected for the ARM when used as a selection measure. When incorporated into safety training the return on investment was estimated at over 1400%.
