National car seat belts design has been evaluated for the comfort of small size driver. Copies of a questionnaire were distributed to 30 participant undergraduate engineering students studying at the University Malaysia Pahang. The participant only female and 5th percentile of Malaysian that represent the small size driver. The variables used to investigate this were based upon those found to predict engagement in selfprotective behaviors by previous researchers and included: comfort, perception of risk, perception of safety, belief about the effectiveness of using a seat belt, beliefs about the seriousness of having a crash, and concern about having a traffic accident or being fined for not using a seat belt. There are many consideration should be cautioned to design and produce a national car’s seat belt that have ergonomics and more safety characteristic. Thus, to create an ergonomic product anthropometry data is plays a main role in the design development. Anthropometry refers to the measurement of humans. Anthropometry has been considered as the very basic core of ergonomics in an attempt to resolve the dilemma of “fitting people to machine. The anthropometric data of American Male (AM) at 95th percentile and the anthropometric data of Malaysian Male (MM) at 95th percentile will be compared and at the same time the focus is more towards the 5th percentile of Malaysian that represent the small size driver as another design requirement for the seat belt.
