COMPANY VEHICLE USE FORM

 

The purpose of this policy is to ensure the safety of those individuals who drive Company vehicles. Vehicle accidents are costly to the Company, but more importantly, they may result in injury to you and others. It is the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner and to drive defensively to prevent injuries and property damage. As such, Double T Cable endorses all applicable state and motor vehicle regulations relating to driver responsibility. Double T Cable expects each driver to drive in a safe and courteous manner pursuant to the following safety rules. The attitude you take behind the wheel is the single most important factor in driving safely.

  1. Company vehicles are to be used for company business only.
  2. Company vehicles are to be driven by authorized employees ONLY, except in emergencies, or in case of repair testing by a mechanic. Other employees and family members are NOT authorized to drive Company vehicles. Unless the vehicle has been approved for personal use, in writing, by the President of the company, personal or outside business use is strictly prohibited.
  3. No unauthorized persons, including friends, family, or customers are allowed to ride in Company vehicles.
  4. No person shall operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or a chemical substance or other substance that can impair judgment.
  5. Drivers of company vehicles must report all infractions or violations while driving a Company vehicle and all restrictions, suspensions or revocations against their driver’s license to their supervisor or supervisor or Executive Management immediately.
  6. Before operating a company vehicle the driver shall satisfy himself/herself that the following are in good working order:
    •  Brakes
    •  Parking brake
    •  Steering
    •  Lights/signals
    •  Tires
    •  Horn
    •  Wipers
    •  Mirrors
  7. When a company vehicle cannot be operated, is unsafe for use, or has been damaged a supervisor or supervisor must be notified immediately.
  8. Drivers should operate vehicles carefully and keep them under control at all times and engage in defensive driving. Drivers must observe all local traffic ordinances, give proper warning signals and always be courteous toward other drivers and pedestrians.
  9. The driver of a company vehicle is responsible for it while in his/her charge and will not permit unauthorized persons to drive it.
  10. The driver or operator of a company vehicle receiving a summons for a traffic or parking violation must inform his/her supervisor as soon as possible after the incident.
  11. Drivers must turn on the vehicle headlights whenever windshield wipers are used due to rain, sleet, hail, fog or other unfavorable weather conditions.
  12. Drivers must use seat/safety belts and all passengers must use seat/safety belts.
  13. The driver is responsible for the daily housekeeping of the vehicle; it is to be kept clean and uncluttered. Vehicles are to be kept neat and tidy at all times inclusive of both the interior and the exterior. Vehicles should be washed at least twice a month and the cost shall be reimbursed under the existing company policy.
  14. No person shall operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or a chemical substance or other substance that can impair judgment. If an employee who drives a company vehicle or drives a personal vehicle on business receives a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) on business or personal time,that associate may not drive a company vehicle or drive his/her personal vehicle on company business for three (3) years. A DUI may cause termination if driving a company vehicle is required to perform job responsibilities. Termination is also possible for an employee who must drive a personal vehicle for business as part of their job, if alternative transportation, made at the associate’s expense, cannot meet the requirements of that position.
  15. Multiple driving moving violations that appear on the annual DMV check, will cause suspension of rights to drive a company vehicle or drive a personal vehicle on company business. Suspension of rights will continue until one (1) year has passed with no infractions. During the time of suspension, alternative arrangements to continue job responsibilities without a company vehicle must be made by the associate at his/her expense. If there are persistent and ongoing problems with driving infractions, and driving a vehicle is a part of successful execution of job responsibilities, termination is possible.
