If a biker has suffered an injury, then it is vital that the helmet is not removed. This is very important, as it is difficult to ascertain if the biker has sustained head or neck injuries in the accident and removing the helmet may cause further neural damage. However, there is an exception to this rule! If the casualty has stopped breathing or gone into cardiac arrest, then you should remove the helmet carefully in order to perform normal CPR.
If you witness a motorbike accident, it is important that you establish if the scene is safe before doing anything else. Turn off engines and switch on hazard lights to warn other motorists. Don’t put yourself at risk by tending to injured people if it is dangerous to do so. Call the emergency services and reassure the casualties that they are on their way.
If the casualty is unconscious, it is important, if it is safe to do so, to check that their Airway is open, that they are Breathing and that you check their Circulation. Remember ABC, as it is an important part of emergency first aid and can save lives!
