MiDAS is the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme. It is organised by the Community Transport Association U.K. (CTA) and promotes a nationally recognised standard for the assessment and training of minibus drivers. The scheme has been designed to enhance minibus driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses in the voluntary and not-for-profit sectors.
PATS has been developed jointly by the Community Transport Association UK and Hampshire County Council. It provides a nationally recognised standard of training to people whose role it is to provide care and assistance to passengers travelling by road.
The 5 Steps to Safety course involves some classroom based training which provides the skills and information needed when evacuating a vehicle fire. There will be a practical element which involves filling a minibus with smoke (by using a smoke machine) and carrying out an evacuation.
The objectives of the 5 Steps to Safety course are:
- How to recognise common causes of fire
- How to reduce the risk of vehicle fires starting
- When and how to use a fire extinguisher
- How to safely evacuate a vehicle using the 5 steps to safety
