SAE Standards for ambulance safety
By Shawna Renga

In 2014, the Society of Automotive Engineers released a set of four updated recommendations regarding safety standards for ambulances. The SAE is a professional organization that primarily develops "best practices" for the automotive, aerospace, and commercial vehicle industries. The four new recommendations join two existing sets of standards, and cover patient compartment restraint, litter integrity, equipment mounting systems, and both front- and side-impact safety systems.

The guidelines for ambulance safety were developed in conjunction with NIOSH and the Ambulance Manufacturers Division of the National Truck Equipment Association. Although a U.S. based group, the SAE recommendations are meant to be used globally in the development and production of ambulances and equipment.
