Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    This policy applies to all employees who drive as a function of their employment.  To drive safely is the first duty of every driver.  This means driving defensively; anticipating mistakes, actions, recklessness, or absent mindedness of pedestrians or other drivers; and being prepared at all times to do everything an expert driver can do to prevent an accident.  Drivers are REQUIRED to observe all rules and procedures outlined in this program

    There are a multitude of liability and insurance considerations with employee’s using a company owned vehicle for personal use and it is an ever changing litigated environment.  If it is approved by an owner or Plant Manager for an employee who is on the approved driver list to use a vehicle for personal use additional waivers and recordkeeping may be required to protect both the employee and the organization from any personal or insurance liabilities. Anyone that uses their personal vehicle for any company business must be on the approved driver list and have provided a copy of a current driver’s license and proof of insurance within established limits to the Accounting office.   It is at the employee’s sole discretion to ensure proper maintenance of their vehicle. Accident reporting kits are required to be maintained in the glove box of those personal vehicles authorized for company business.  These kits are available through the corporate office. ere

    Each company owned vehicle contains a driving log which records who has used the vehicle, miles driven and reason for use.  This log should be used for any travel outside of the local community.  Each facility has adopted a procedure for the completion and storage of the log, the keys of the vehicle(s), and assignment of vehicle maintenance responsibility.  Please see your HR department for more information. In all cases, you must respect the condition and cleanliness of the company vehicle you are driving.  You may be taken off the approved driver list if you do not keep the vehicle in clean condition, follow the logging procedures or properly sign the vehicle in and out.  Repeat offenders could be subject to additional disciplinary action up to and including discharge of employment.

    Falcon Plastics realizes some accidents are unpreventable. Drivers should seek medical attention immediately, if necessary.  Supervisors and drivers will be trained in post-accident procedures to secure the details of the accident and document the damage.  Providing detailed facts of the accident will help our insurance carrier deter fraudulent third-party insurance schemes.    All vehicles will be supplied with an accident claims kit, a pen and a disposable camera. Drivers are required to document all details of the accident: traffic flow, speed limits, stop lights/signs, weather conditions, citations issued, etc.  Pictures should be taken to document the extent of damage to all vehicles involved.  If you are driving your personal vehicle, you can obtain a kit from the front office.  If you have access to cell phone that has picture taking capabilities, this can also be used to document the incident.   Once this information is secured, the driver is to report all accidents immediately to their supervisor.  If the vehicle is inoperable, arrangements need to be made for towing and delivery of cargo, if necessary.
