Thanks for the input. I was actually able to find a "Letter of Interpretation" from OSHA. It specifically addresses the use of these type of vehicles. On a worksite, they are considered a "motor vehicle". The definition come from the dictionary and OSHA agrees with the definition. So, if it is a "motor vehicle" seatbelt(s) would be required. Personally, I prefer to show management the laws as opposed to always pointing towards liability. Sometimes they are too willing to accept the risk, which drives me nuts.
Again, thanks for the input.
