106: Vehicle Safety Equipment
Motor Pool Policy & Procedure Manual
Section 100: Vehicle Safety
To identify the safety equipment placed in Motor Pool vehicles.
All departments and individuals involved in the renting, using and maintenance of Motor Pool vehicles.
No equipment shall be added or taken from a Motor Pool vehicle without the expressed consent of the Motor Pool Manager.
Each vehicle shall be equipped with:
- first aid kit
- certificate of insurance, and
- accident reporting forms.
These items are for use in or on the vehicle in which they are stored and for the safety of users of the vehicle. Removal for non-authorized use results in an inconvenience to other users, increased costs of operation and reduced safety for the users. Use of first aid kit, chains, or flares should be reported to the Motor Pool as soon as possible in order to replenish/replace the items.
The Motor Pool shall prepare a replacement schedule for vehicles based on industry/government practices taking into account budget constraints, historical usage, and cost of maintenance.
