The project was commissioned by the UK Department of Transport (DoT) and aimed at identifying suitable technical standards for the seat belts and their anchorages as well as ergonomically acceptable restraint systems for agricultural vehicles. The project was also tasked with examining the provision, use and experience of seat belts in the earth-moving machinery industry, to establish whether any lessons learnt were applicable to agricultural vehicles and whether there was a case for common standards across both vehicle types.
This report presents the main findings of a project to study the provision of seat belts for agricultural vehicles.
