Screening & Training Drivers
Do you know what screening should be done for an employee or volunteer who uses his or her own car for you Nonprofit Organization ? How about an employee or volunteer who uses one of your cars for work? Before you let an employee use their vehicle make sure you perform an application process, personal interview, reference checks, review of valid driver’s license, and check that they carry proof of personal insurance in the car. It is also important to check with your insurance carrier to determine if there is coverage on your business auto policy for your Nonprofit Organization.
For those using your vehicle, it is your responsibility to check with your insurance agent regarding auto liability insurance coverage, have the applicant obtain a motor vehicle records (MVR) check, and ask for a statement of medical conditions. Along with the above, remember to screen the applicant using an application, hold an interview, perform reference checks, and ensure a valid driver’s license is used. If the employee must operate a large vehicle special licenses and certificates may be required. Remember, anyone that needs a Commercial Drivers License must undergo drug and alcohol testing.
