"Präventionsmobil Verkehrssicherheit"

"Präventionsmobil Verkehrssicherheit"

VBG already offered numerous ways for its member companies to inform themselves about road safety and train their employees. In the past we focused our actions on car traffic. During an evaluation of accident reports we found, that a large amount of severe accidents in road traffic were suffered by employees using a bike. This fact urged us to come up with a strategy to counter this fact. Therefore we devised a van that could transport all material needed for a bike safety training. The advantage of this approach is that employees do not need to travel to a training area but can complete the training directly on the ground of their company. The van also carries diverse examples of protective garment (e.g. different types of helmets or reflective clothing) that can be demonstrated during trainings. Since all material transported is secured by state of the art means of load securing we can also use the van to demonstrate this aspect.

If you work together with external partners, list the most important partners and briefly describe their role. 
German road safety council (Deutscher Verkehrssicherheitsrat) (DVR): The DVR provides staff that drives the van and conducts quality controlled bike safety trainings.
