BIKER SAFETY TRAINING AT WOLLASTON MOTORRAD11.12.2015
Road safety is extremely important to us as bikers; not only personal safety but also for us to be prepared should we witness a road collision. Last night we welcomed Keith Wheeler, Road Safety Officer from ‘BikerDown’ to Wollaston for some road safety training.
‘Biker Down’ is a free scheme which is aimed at motorcyclists of all ages and experience. They offer the chance to learn practical skills to help avoid being involved in a crash, as well as essential first-aid training and advice on what to do should they find themselves first on the scene of a crash where someone is injured. The scheme is delivered free of charge, to participants and is made up of three modules:
> Accident scene management
> Motorcycle specific first-aid training i.e. CPR,managing major bleeds and helmet removal
> Tuition on the science of being seen
The lads got stuck in to the training (especially the mouth to mouth part!) and learnt extremely vital skills. One of the many useful elements of the course was learning how to safely remove a helment from an injured rider at the scene of an accident. The skills learnt really could be the difference of life or death and we're now confident that we could make a difference, should we be faced with a road accident.
Thanks to Keith for his excellent training. Here’s to a safe winter on the roads!
