Difference between UTV and RTV

I am trying to find the goverment classifcations differences between UTVandRTV's. We run Kubotas at work and the company is treating them as ATV's as far as safety goes. These machines top out at 25km and have full ROPs etc. They want us to have shoulder straps installed and wear helmets not hardhats. Kubota wont put the shoulder strap in and these are used solely in our pump station yards. So I am trying to find how they are governed?? I read one time the difference between them but cannot find now. Any help would be great. Thanks

Occupant roll-over protection
28(3) For the purposes of subsection (2), "occupant roll-over protection" means a cab or frame that is capable of supporting an off-road vehicle in an overturned position.
Seat belt required
29(1) Every operator of and passenger in an off-road vehicle which is being operated in accordance with the provisions of this Act and in which a seat belt assembly is provided, shall wear a complete seat belt assembly in a properly adjusted and securely fastened manner.
Prohibition of removal of seat belt
29(2) No person shall remove from an off-road vehicle a seat belt, or any part thereof, that was installed by the manufacturer, except to replace broken or worn seat belts or parts thereof.
Compliance with order of peace officer 30 Every operator or owner of an off-road vehicle shall, on a signal from a peace officer requiring the operator or owner to do so, immediately bring the off-road vehicle to a stop or cause the off-road vehicle to be brought to a stop at a place directed by the peace officer, and shall not proceed until so directed by the peace officer; and shall forthwith comply with an order of the peace officer as to moving the off-road vehicle from any place.
