Road Traffic Workshop

Road Traffic Workshop

Our BTEC Applied Science (Forensic Science) students attended a workshop, run by the fire-fighters at Egham Fire Station, to learn about the major causes of road traffic collisions. 

 

The day started with the students using a driving simulator to see how they would respond to a range of driving situations. They then learned how to remove a casualty from a damaged car, including how to remove the glass, plastic interior, doors and roof from the car!

 

Surrey Police then explained  how driving legislation affects young drivers. Following a short introduction to first aid, the group had to respond to a simulated road traffic collision which involved stabilising the casualty, cutting them free from the damaged vehicle and placing them on a back board to prevent further spinal injury.

 

The students worked very hard and thoroughly enjoyed the day- so much so that a number of them asked to do the same again tomorrow.
