Why does my business need a Use of Company Vehicle Policy and Procedure Template?
The Use of Company Vehicle Policy and Procedure Template provides guidelines for procedures to take if an accident happens on the roads while the employee is driving a company vehicle and how commonly occurring situations are to be handled that. The policy also outlines which liabilities the business will cover, and which liabilities are excluded.
This Policy also includes a Company Vehicle Acknowledgement and Request Form and a Company Vehicle Damage and Accident Report to record the details of the employees who the vehicles are loaned out to, and the vehicles themselves.
If your business loans vehicles to employees for work related activities, you will need a Use of Company Vehicle Policy and Procedure Template document so that you can implement this policy in your business. This will assist in upholding safety standards, communicating clearly the responsibilities of employees, and the liabilities covered and excluded by the business with regards to driving company vehicles.
If you allow your employees to use their own vehicles to complete work activities, you should consider implementing a Use of Personal Motor Vehicle Policy.
