Purchasing New Vehicles?

Q. As the EHS Specialist for our company, I make it a habit to regularly review articles concerning safety in the work place. The one area that seems to be a little confusing to me is all of the safety equipment or safety features that can come on a new vehicle. It seems as if each manufacturer has something just a little different to offer, and I find myself wanting one device from one manufacturer and another device from a different manufacturer.

Could you give me an idea of what safety items we should be considering when purchasing new vehicles?
