Fasten your Seatbelt………..                                                                         


Nils Bohlin, an engineer at Volvo, invented the three-point seat belt in 1959. The 1950s were a time when pilots and racing drivers wore harnesses, but seatbelts – where they were fitted in cars – took the form of a rudimentary two-point waist restraint. In crashes, sometimes these did more harm than good.


The reason the three-point seatbelt is so widely adopted is because Volvo opened up the patent so that any car manufacturer could use it in their design. They decided that the invention was so significant, it had more value as a free life-saving tool than something to profit from.


These are the values that live strongly in the Volvo culture today.  In Scotland Volvo designs, develops, manufactures and fully supports two ranges of haulers that are sold and exported all over the world at their Newhouse site.

The HR Business Partner contributes as part of a multi-disciplined team, autonomously supporting the business leaders, helping them to get the very best from their people.
