Post-crash advice from the U.K.

Interactive Driving Systems U.K. Ltd. has launched a new guide to managing the post- collision process

Interactive Driving Systems U.K. Ltd. has launched a new guide to managing the post- collision process. Although it is not written specifically for drivers in the United States, fleet managers and safety directors anywhere may find the straightforward information helpful. The guide is available online in a PDF format.

Of particular interest to U.S. fleets are the sections on:

  • Crash reporting and recording self-audit
  • Fast-track reporting and scene management
  • Managing the media
  • The use of cameras to capture images at the scene
  • Sample Corrective Action Policy
  • Injury rehabilitation and trauma management advice

Some terms, such as the “at scene bump card” may not be familiar to U.S. safety directors and their drivers, but the easy-to-understand form offers a good way to capture the information required by many cities and states when filing an official accident report. The company also has a U.S. operation, Interactive Driving Systems, Inc., based in New Jersey.
