Safety Belt Examinations  

Independent study session conducted over one hour.

This webinar will focus on the manner in which safety belts operate. You will learn how to collect the forensic evidence from the safety belt hardware which may confirm either use or non-use during a crash.

Frontal collisions will be contrasted with side and rear impacts and the occupant kinematic movements related to each type of collision will be discussed. Evidence from multiple safety belt examinations will be examined and used to demonstrate many of the classification of marks and their interpretation leading to the conclusion as to whether or not the safety belt was in use.


Law enforcement and private traffic crash investigators, claims adjusters, engineers, attorneys, safety officers, military investigative personnel, animators and graphic designers
