Ambulance crashes account for 74% of fatalities in EMS and the costs associated with them can cripple an agency for years. How can we reverse this trend and provide patients and staff with a safer environment?
This webinar takes a close look at two facets of ambulance safety: the vehicle and the driver. David McGowan will review several successful behavior-based safety programs to provide insight on how to improve vehicle safety in all types of EMS and fire organizations, from behavior modification devices to cultural shifts.
David will also uncover the hidden costs of ambulance crashes and provide several examples of a “cost-of-a-loss” worksheet, as well as discussing how agencies can focus on the operational side of vehicle safety, assess their safety programs and develop a comprehensive roadmap to mitigate risk within their organization. R.J. Morrison will discuss how Armstrong Ambulance Service has reduced its number of ambulance-related crashes through the deployment of the Road Safety system.
