Although motorcycling is becoming safer in terms of road safety, we still account for more than 20% of all accidents, yet only 1% of all traffic. These are worrying figures and a whole host of resources are being used to make motorcycling safer.
Regardless of the cause of the accidents, riders who are involved need first aid care. As bikers, you can ensure that you are aware of the basic steps to first aid which could help if you come across an accident.
There are a number of providers who specialise in first aid courses, some of which offer motorcycle specific courses.
Further information is also available from the Air Ambulance who have saved many lives due to their ability to respond so quickly to accidents.
