 VEHICLE EXTRICATION  Dynamic Risk Assessment


Crash damaged vehicles occasioning occupant entrapment can incorporate many hazards especially where the vehicles electrics cannot be isolated. With the advances in vehicle technology, continual dynamic risk assessment has become an essential factor in safe-guarding work practices at the scene of vehicle collisions. This eBook contains all the essential knowledge with regards to new technology and extrication evolutions for risk recognition, hazard identification and subsequent risk control measures and risk critical information.
