The College of Natural Resources have vehicles available for rent. If a unit wishes to rent vehicles to other university units, they must consult with Risk before the rental occurs and must ensure the following requirements before releasing a vehicle:
Obtain verification that a signed VUA form is on file in the driver’s unit.
Ensure that each vehicle has a vehicle accident claim kit. To request an accident claim kit, contact Risk.
Post cautionary, safe-use guideline signs provided by EHS in conspicuous locations in all 8 -12 passenger vans.
Immediately report all accidents to Risk, and when appropriate, assist Risk in any accident investigation or information gathering activity.
Maintain vehicles, update maintenance records, and inspect vehicles on a regular basis. All university vehicles must pass inspection by a qualified inspector annually. An Annual Vehicle Inspection Checklist must be used to document a university vehicle has passed an annual inspection in order for it to remain in service. It is recommended that checklists that are at least as comprehensive as those provided in the Idaho Office of Insurance Management’s Statewide Safety and Loss Control Program Model, are used to perform weekly, monthly and quarterly inspections; approved checklists may be found and downloaded from the Environmental Health & Safety.
Ensure that each university-owned vehicle is equipped with a first aid kit and a fire extinguisher.
