WHO WE ARE
Safety Engineering International is a vehicle safety engineering company. Our design engineers have years of experience in rollover accident investigation and dynamic vehicle testing which allowed them to gain a better understanding of how injuries occur in rollovers and what precautiions can be taken to prevent serious injuries. These findings are the building blocks for our HALO Rollover Occupant Protection System.
