Advanced Driving Courses
In the world of motoring, safety is achieved if dangers are recognized in time and thus avoided or overcome. This applies just as much to the average driver who loses control of his vehicle on a slippery road surface as to the professional faced with the task of accompanying a person potentially at risk. Further problems arise if the vehicle has to be used in the fight against crime to stop culprits from escaping. Whenever specialized knowledge is required, the best course of action is to proceed from the simple to the more complicated. Handling one’s vehicle in any conceivable critical situation is a precondition. Additional specialized knowledge is essential to guarantee the safety of people at risk, be it the hostage in the getaway car or the passenger in the back seat. We are specialists in safety on the road.
Due to the critical subject, confidentiality is highly recommended and all matters should be handled on a secure basis.

Securing of Loads
As the majority of goods within a country is being transported on the road (and has caused much damage so far) it appears that securing of load is essential / imperative for today’s road traffic. Engineers have developed a proven system … which we will help you implement and maintain.
- We organize training courses in securing of loads
- and offer any help in setting up an appropriate system. Inadequate load securing often results in the loss of loads, such as for example squared lumber, fridges, paper rolls and steel sheet, on the roads, resulting in delays and, at worst, accidents.
Recommendations for road accident investigation
There is a range of road accident investigation procedures and protocols in place across Europe. Unlike aviation, rail and maritime accident investigation, no legal requirements or clearly formulated objectives exist for the organisation of transparent and independent road accident investigation. The SafetyNet Deliverable 4.3 aims to address this by presenting a set of draft recommendations for transparent and independent accident investigation processes. The recommendations represent the culmination of knowledge gained from reviewing the current procedures for investigating road accidents in commercial companies, police forces, existing independent road accident investigation bodies as well as those for rail, civil aviation and maritime accident investigation.
Deliverable 4.3 first sets out the hypothetical characteristics of a Road Accident Investigation Body and then describes the conclusions of two small-scale pilot consultation exercises. Second, it introduces a discussion on the costs involved in performing independent road accident investigations by examining the costs of investigating accidents in other transport modes, and in-depth road accident investigation studies. After that various recommendations are discussed in detail.
Transparent and independent accident investigation requires sound procedures and protocols in four related areas of the investigation process: (1) institutional (2) operational (3) data management and (4) development of countermeasures and data dissemination/publication. For each of these areas, a number of recommendations aim to assure the transparency and independence of the investigation processes. The recommendations intend to build on existing best practice. They are designed to be as realistic, feasible, and achievable as possible. To this end an ‘Assessment Tool’ presenting questions with high (best practice), intermediate and low level ‘answers’ has been included in the deliverable so that each member state can assess its own road accident investigation procedures. The main recommendations are summarised as follows:
The investigation body should be notified of accidents at the same time as the emergency services to allow immediate access to the accident scene
- investigations should be safety oriented and kept separate from the judicial enquiry into the same accident
- Data collected according to a public investigation manual should build a complete picture of the accident.
- Road accident investigators should have the legal right to access the scene of accidents and to access all vehicles and evidence
The investigation body should be independent in structure, function and finances
- Accident investigation should be carried out by dedicated multi-disciplinary teams with specialist knowledge across a number of relevant areas.
Collected data should not be used to give evidence about fault or blame (including in a court of law)
- Collected data should be securely stored in an accident database enabling future retrieval
- No data containing information that would lead directly to the identification of persons involved in the accident should be released to a third party.
Development of countermeasures
- Accident reports and statistical data should be made publicly available at both national and community level
- Recommendations should be developed independently from stakeholders, but they should take into account external expertise in order to ensure usability, realism and likelihood of adoption.
- Recommendations from independent road accident investigations should be passed to the relevant stakeholder(s) for implementation; the stakeholders should have a legal obligation to respond to the recommendations and justify their planned actions
- The road accident investigation body should play a coordination role by maintaining a record of recommendations, responses of organisations to recommendations, and the state of progress towards implementation in relation to stated timescales
The mechanism of post-crash trauma care (or Trauma Management – TM) comprises two types of medical treatment: that provided by emergency medical services (EMS) and that provided by permanent medical facilities.
EMS are those, which normally answer the emergency calls and deal with the next steps, like sending an ambulance to the scene of crash. EMS staff provides basic medical assistance to injured patients on the scene and during the transportation to a hospital. There are different forms of EMS, which depend on:
- the type of transport means (ambulance, helicopter);
- EMS vehicle equipment (mobile intensive care unit; basic life support unit; regular ambulance);
- medical staff arriving with the vehicle, which may include a physician, a paramedic, a ”critical care“ nurse, an emergency medical technician.
Further medical treatment can be provided at a regular hospital or at a specially equipped trauma centre/ the trauma department of a hospital, whereas minor injuries are usually treated by doctors/ other medical staff outside a hospital. The focus of the TM system is on patients who are hospitalized.
We offer comprehensive services in the areas of traffic and site access and development planning, road construction, project management, traffic research and consultation.
