AVOID PYROTECHNICAL ACCIDENTS WITH OUR AIRBAG TRAINING.
Airbags, seat belt tensioners, pedestrian protection and other pyrotechnic safety devices in vehicles are intended to protect the occupants of the vehicle and pedestrians from serious injuries in the event of an accident under certain conditions. When installed, these are usually safe from unintentional triggering. When handling these pyrotechnic objects in the workshop area, however, incorrect handling can lead to unwanted triggering. This can have serious consequences. For example, when the airbag is triggered, there’s a noise emission of up to 180dB, with 100dB already being considered as harmful to health. Temperatures of up to 700°C can also occur at the pyrotechnic generators. When triggered, the airbag itself unfolds at a speed of up to 200km/h. These high speeds can cause serious injury to humans.
It’s therefore essential to have relevant specialist knowledge when handling pyrotechnic objects. As laid out by the 1st Explosive Ordinance, Section 4, Paragraph 3, for example, installation and removal, purchase and sales may only be carried out by trained personnel with limited specialist knowledge and that this limited specialist knowledge must be proven to the competent authority upon request.
We prepare you for this required specialist knowledge in our training courses tailored for you.
