Have a word to your local Fire Station.

Advise on this matter was issued to the Fire Brigades some time ago.

I think it was in a Dear Chief Fire Officer note.

The Fire Service provide training to all officers attending RTAs based on Home Office research and data from the USA.

You might also try to speak to manufacturers. Their information may be limited (they are trying to sell cars at the end of the day) but we found Jaguar were very helpful in providing Police Officers with training.

HSE has a publication which may help.

"A guide to the handling and storage of Airbags and Seat Belt Pretensioners at garages and motor vehicle repair workshops" INDG280
