Seat belt safety training on the Web
The Professional Development Initiative (PDI) World Wide Web based training server now has a brief training module on the benefits of Seat belt usage. This will not only meet the requirement for Seat belt training, but it's a great introduction to the PDI. In order to use the Seat Belt Module, you will first need a User ID and password on the PDI. Go to the SOLAR Web site (https://solar.msfc.nasa.gov) and click on Request a User ID & Password from the first time user area. Fill out the form on line. As a HQ employee (Or contractor assigned a nasa.gov email address) you will be approved automatically. Once you have an ID & password, you need to select the Catalog icon, then select Catalog again. Scroll down on the next screen and select Mission Assurance, then select Mission Assurance again. The NASA Safety and Mission Assurance Catalog will then be in view, scroll down the screen to the Special Topics section and select the Seat Belt Safety course.
