Child Safety Restraints and children in work vehicles

If you take your child in your work car, van, SUV or work truck, you should determine the type of safety seat that's appropriate to your child's age or weight and will allow you full control of the vehicle including use of the stick shift.

If your child is newborn to nine months or twenty pounds, use an infant safety seat. With this type of protection, the infant rides backwards in a semi-reclining position and is held in place by a built-in harness. The vehicle's lap belt secures the safety seat in place. For comfort and added support, folded towels may be placed between the infant's body and sides of the seat.

If your child is nine months to four years or forty pounds, use a toddler safety seat. There are two types of restraints: the harness and the booster seat. The harness in a wrap around seat comes across both shoulders and up between the legs. The padded sides offer protection. The seat is secured by the vehicle's safety belt. Some models are anchored at the top with a bolt. If you use this type, you must install the anchor bolt on the rear shelf or the seat will be unsafe. In the elevated booster seat, the child is secured by the vehicle lap belt and either the vehicle shoulder belt or the special harness sold with the unit, which required an anchor bolt.

If your child is over four years, we recommend that you use the safety belt in the company car, van, SUV or work truck. Remember, your family is your first priority.

Do not let kids ride in the back of a work truck. If you should take your company van or truck to little league, AYSO, Girl Scouts, cheerleading, band tournaments, etc. for advertising that is a smart thing to do indeed and yes this is good for business. People see the company van or truck with logos, make sure when others see your portable advertisement they see it being used properly with the safety of the children also in mind. If you go to pizza afterwards, only take as many kids as available seat belts. Please stay safe and protect your business from liability lawsuits and above all let's keep the kids safe too, someday they will be working for you or maybe running your business in your retirement, think about it please.
