New Occupant Protection Best Practices Manual Available

Occupant Protection Manual Cover

GHSA has published a new best practices manual on occupant protection for children (OPC). The guide was developed with the resources and support of State Farm®. The publication follows previously developed comprehensive guidelines and serves as a tool for state highway safety offices to examine their OPC programs and focus their resources where they are most needed.

The manual highlights programs that are designed to address the needs of children who fall between a booster seat program and traditional driver education programs. These children are typically between the ages of eight and 16. The manual represents the next step toward a stronger, data-driven and research-based program. It provides examples of various program components that can be replicated throughout the country.

A limited number or print copies are available. To request a copy, e-mail or download a copy online.
