Wearing your seatbelt properly is an important part of operator and passenger safety and has been proven effective in reducing personal injury in car accidents.
1. The lap belt should be worn across the hip bones – never be positioned across the stomach or soft part of the abdomen.
2. The shoulder strap should be as snug as possible and yet allow the driver to reach important controls. Adjust the shoulder strap so it is comfortable. Wearing the shoulder strap tucked under the arm or behind the back is dangerous and can cause serious personal injury.
