Damage package hybrid
The damage package may be required when a vehicle is damaged in such a way that is it no longer possible to work on it in a normal manner and it is no longer possible to determine in a normal manner whether the vehicle is safe. This may be the case with a deformed cage structure after a collision.
The damage package contains the following elements
- Respiratory protection
- Face protection
- Insulated tools
In the event of damage, in some cases it is no longer possible to work on a vehicle normally. Damage can also cause a battery pack to be deformed, or that the means for securing are no longer normally accessible in the vehicle, such as the service plug. It is then important to take extra safety measures to make the vehicle safe. For example, insulated tools can be used when it is not easy to determine whether components are voltage-free. In the case of damaged battery packs, respiratory protection can be used so that toxic fumes are not inhaled and, lastly, face protection is important when disconnecting HV connections when it is not possible to determine whether the vehicle’s safety measures are still functioning properly due to damage. GMTO has included these tools in the GMTO Hybrid and EV damage package.
