POV Risk Assessment – Statistics and Probability
A POV Risk Assessment provides the information to avoid risk when driving a Privately Owned Vehicle (POV). It is used in Trips Risk assessment for planning trips such as vacations, expeditions, and the Army uses it for assessing the inherent dangers of military members going off base while on active duty. It consists of a questionnaire that will ask a series of questions based on statistics and possible dangers to determine the risk involved in the activity while driving. This makes it easier to be aware of certain dangers that may occur. There will be questions that may seem obvious in determining risk just to be thorough but there are other factors to consider that some may not think to consider. Some questions include things like are you going to wear a seatbelt, expected weather conditions, condition of vehicle, expected departure and return, to name a few.
