On-Location // National Express Safety Training Video

Before the sun rises each day, and all those school buses pull out of their lots, the drivers of National Express need to be trained on driver safety. This includes a twice-daily process of checking the safety of each bus. The training video we produced takes drivers through each step in that process. We learned a few things along the way, too.
