(R) Operator Restraint System for Off-Road Work Machines
|Publication Date:||1 February 2006|
This SAE Standard establishes the minimum performance requirements for pelvic restraint systems (seat belts, anchorages, and the fastening elements of seat belts) necessary to restrain an operator or rider within a roll-over protective structure (ROPS) in the event of a machine roll-over, as defined in ISO 3471, or tip-over protection structure (TOPS), in the event of a machine tip over as defined in ISO 12117.
This SAE Standard applies to off-road, self-propelled work machines fitted with ROPS as specified in ISO 3471, TOPS as specified in ISO 12117 and operator restraint.
This revision updates external refereneces to industry accepted ISO specifications. The document was reorganized to meet industry request. Additional detail was added to incorporate the current state of the art for restraint systems. The use of referenced documents was minimized to allow a more comprehensive specification.
