PREVENTION - Safety Awareness Modules


Today’s automobile technology evolves so fast that it is quite difficult to understand all of them. What means ABS, ESC...? What is the purpose of these systems and how to use ? The main parameters leading to fatal accidents are identified (alcohol, drug, overspeed...) but today it seems important to know the available safety systems and how to use them in an emergency situation.
Fasten your seatbelt is a good start, but adjusting it correctly is better. What are the consequences of an airbag deployment for an unbelted occupant ? How to use the ABS. How difficult is the proper adjustment of Child Restraint System (CRS)? How about two-wheels over risk situations ?

Safety awareness modules are available, covering various topics and can be adapted to your objectives. This could be done as speaker in classroom or as hexibitor in showroom, exposition. Concerning road safety at work, we recommend a preliminary assessment with respect to your company internal HSE policy.
