You will be required to comply with these rules if you are the manager of a mine, or the principal employer at a mine. You must ensure that every vehicle used at your mine is fitted with seat belts which comply with the third edition of these Design Rules.
The contents of this Australian Design Rule specify requirements for seatbelts to:
- Restrain vehicle occupants under impact conditions;
- Facilitate fastening and correct adjustment;
- Assist the driver to remain in their seat in an emergency situation and thus maintain control of the vehicle; and
- Protect against ejection in an accident situation.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
