With many accidents occurring on our roads, you might find yourself on the scene of one.

Here is what you can do:

  • The safety of accident victims, emergency personnel, and other road users is the most important goal when an accident occurs.
  • The first hour following an accident is known as the “Golden Hour,” and doctors say seriously injured car crash victims must receive comprehensive medical care within 60 minutes to have a good chance of survival. This scenario gives rescuers about 12 minutes at the accident scene to extricate the injured and get them to the hospital.
  • Consider the traffic flow at the scene. Is it a risk to you or others, including the casualty?
  • Consider the impact on emergency vehicles trying to reach the scene before stopping traffic.

  • If anyone is available, send someone up and down the road to wave down traffic.
  • Turn on hazard lights and ignite flares if the incident happened at night to warn oncoming motorists of the danger.
  • Consider the positioning of any vehicles involved in the incident and the potential hazards they may pose (such as rolling forwards or backwards). Consider safety – constantly reassess the safety of the scene, especially if you rely on others to keep you safe.
  • Turn off all of the vehicles involved in the collision.
