Driver Safety

What We Do

There are many things we can do to have a safe driving experience, whether driving a personal vehicle or driving a University of Idaho vehicle for work. EHS provides training, checklists to document required monthly and annual inspections of vehicles and recommendations for pre-trip inspections.

Information on insurance and vehicle accident reporting is available through Risk Management at 208-885-7177 or risk@uidaho.edu.

What You Need to Do

Be trained: before driving university owned, rented or leased vehicles, employees, students and volunteers (drivers) are required to complete the defensive driving course offered through Netlearning@uidaho.  This course reviews policies found in the APM 05.08 and forms that must be completed prior to using a university vehicle.

Inspect the vehicle: drivers need to conduct a pre-trip inspection before getting behind the wheel and report issues to the proper authority to ensure the vehicle is safe to drive. Additional monthly and annual inspections must be conducted by appropriate personnel.

Supervisors are responsible: supervisors must ensure drivers complete the defensive driving course every five years, submit a satisfactory driver’s record check every three years and have a signed Vehicle Use Agreement on file before driving.
