Incident investigation course launched for fleets

TRL has developed a two-day vehicle incident investigation course to give fleets the tools to take corrective action and clarify the facts when advising a company of its legal position.

Aimed at health and safety, fleet, and operation managers, it will also help them gather potentially critical, short-lived evidence from incident scenes and provide a detailed source of evidence, independent of other investigation agencies.

The first of these courses will take place at TRL’s Wokingham offices in Berkshire on August 10 and 11, and again on September 23 and 24, and will be delivered by experienced accident investigators.

The following areas will be covered: equipment required for accident investigation; health and safety considerations; vehicle examination techniques; injury causation; reconstruction methods, including reaction times, skid to a stop, pedestrian throw, critical curve and momentum exchange; rollover and vehicle stability; electronic information; and report writing.

For further information, email Rebecca Cookson, senior investigator at TRL, at rcookson@trl.co.uk.
