Whether operating a motor vehicle on or off the job, driving is one of the most hazardous tasks most people probably ever perform.
Units are expected to assist in controlling the risks associated with University vehicle use by making sure that all vehicles are maintained in a safe condition, and that drivers are trained and required to drive University vehicles safely, in accordance with related policies and procedures, at all times.
Employees are required to complete the University’s defensive driving course prior to driving any University vehicle. This webpage contains information on this course, checklists that can be used to document required and recommended vehicle inspections, and links to the policies, procedures and forms related to the use of University vehicles.
