Heavy Machinery Seatbelts
Each year many unnecessary fatalities due to inadequate safety restraints occur. In fact, according to Worksafe in Victoria, 5 deaths can be directly attributed to inadequate safety restraints in Victoria alone during 2001.
Types of Heavy Machinery Belts:
Most of these type of belts are 3” (76mm) to comply with OSH requirements.
1. Static Seatbelt
2. Retractable Seatbelt
Because they have no ball sensor, they can be mounted at any practical angle.
These retractors are designed to lock once the belt
is extracted and latched into the buckle. They then
wind in any belt slack and hold the occupant securely in their seat.
Fitting a Springbelt® is a matter of life and death
Whether it’s because they can’t be bothered, they find them unnecessary or they wrongly think it’s safer to try and jump free in an emergency, the fact is that many operators don’t fasten their seat belts. Often with tragic results.
That’s why Autoliv® felt compelled to develop a more practical alternative.
It’s called the Springbelt, because as you can see, it springs up when unbuckled making it a real nuisance and uncomfortable to operate the machine.
Then when it’s buckled, it holds the operator firmly, comfortably and safely in his seat.
A universal fitting kit makes it easy to install Springbelt in all common types of mobile machinery.
