Can anybody assist me?

I am trying to find out where I can get training videos/DVD's that I can use to train drivers of road tankers. The drivers that I train, travel through 3rd world countries that do not have the resources to act in the event of an incident and the countries seldom care (unless they can issue a spot fine) many of these drivers are semi literate. The material therefore needs to focus primarily on safety and prevention. Thanks. Kind regards, Chris.
