The U.S. and Europe have pursued somewhat different paths in regard to seat evaluation and selection.In 1969, the Off-Highway Council established the Joint Seating Subcommittee reporting to the Tractor Technical Committee and the Construction & Industrial Machinery Technical Committee, to review information in these areas and to develop appropriate recommended practices. The activities of this Subcommittee are reported and suggestions for future work are outlined.
