Safety is our top priority!
All our drivers have to undergo extensive training programs, ranging from road safety training, accident and stress management up to communication and language courses. Of course, our drivers are also subject to the stritest rules on working and rest periods. In the following I may also give you general information about how we deal with the issue of safety at Blaguss:
Blaguss is a partner of the Austrian Road Safety Board.
Blaguss Minibus is a KFV project partner. We give our drivers additional training together with the Austrian Road Safety Board. Drivers and assistant drivers are continually being instructed on the subject of ‘safe & defensive driving’ as well as ‘continuing education up to 3.5 t for school-bus drivers’.
Blaguss invests in its employees.
In addition to these KFV trainings, Blaguss invests in advanced training activities such as 16 h of first aid, psychological training, briefing by the company doctor, as well as relaxation and de-escalation for employees in school bus operation. Blaguss bus drivers are also continually trained in dealing with special-needs people. We do that so that our passengers feel well and arrive safely at the destination.
Safety in every Blaguss bus
Blaguss provides Austria’s youngest, most modern bus fleet. All of the buses are maintained regularly in the company’s own Austrian specialist workshops. Each bus is equipped with restraint systems. Sufficient seat elevations and child seats as needed, boarding aids as well as additional hand grips and expanded internal lighting are part of our standard.
Allow me a personal comment: I know my bus drivers and I can rely on them.
