Training matters

What are you doing for your safety?

Safety consciousness is marked to a greater or lesser extent in many areas of everyday life. However, when it becomes a matter of routine, safety issues are frequently relegated into the background. This also applies with car driving. Our aim is to identify accident causes together with you and to draw up avoidance strategies. The following learning and training matters are to be considered in the program:

Whoever brakes properly is the winner!

Almost everyone has heard or read the saying "whoever brakes is the loser". In road traffic, this clause is only conditionally correct. After all, as in real life, we frequently have only a single attempt on the road in a dangerous situation.

Whoever brakes properly has the better chance of survival, however. It is necessary to train optimal braking procedures therefore. And that in different road conditions. We help you to do this.

Avoiding an obstacle – but how?

Braking and avoiding an obstacle – with and without ABS – has to be learnt. However, what is possible and where are the physical driving limits? Seeing and feeling the difference between a vehicle with ABS and one without ABS.

Why load-securing?

In the event of accident, there are unfortunately repeated serious injuries or death as a result of lost loads. It is neither excessively costly nor time-consuming to secure the load in such a way that personal injuries caused by loads in the vehicle are reduced to a minimum in the event of an accident - or even completely avoided altogether.

We show you how to stack your load properly and safely.

The vehicle is on fire – what should I do?

Many vehicles have fire extinguishers on board. But do all drivers know how to use them in cases of emergency? Of course, everyone gains no pleasure in having to use a fire extinguisher. But when it is essential, improper handling in an attempt to extinguish a fire can quickly be critical.

We show you the theoretical knowledge and practical handling of our environmentally-friendly and residue-free fire fighting trainer. In addition: when is more meaningful to call the fire brigade?

Dangerous goods in the vehicle – is that possible?

Almost everyone has been in a do-it-yourself-store and has bought one item or another and has transported it or them back in his or her car. Whoever thinks that the load is possibly dangerous and whether special handling and identification is essential? Perhaps it may even not be transported in a passenger vehicle at all.

In the seminar, you are given an insight in to the relevant sections of the Dangerous Goods Transportation Act (GGBefG) and many a participant will realize that he or she has unknowingly transported dangerous goods.
