Fort Lewis College Fleet Safety & Driver Training Update
Hanover has expressed an interest in focusing on fleet safety at Fort Lewis College, as this area of their insurance history has one of the highest costs as well as serious accidents/fatalities. With this in mind anyone renting a vehicle from the motor pool must successfully complete a series training courses offered by Hanover Insurance. The courses cover topics appropriate for travel around Fort Lewis College. If you pull a trailer there is an additional course covering towing safety that you will be required to complete.
The on-line training courses range from 15 – 50 minutes in length. The first course that must be completed before you can check out a vehicle is the 15 Passenger Van Safety. By October 1st drivers should have completed the distracted driving course. By November 1st our drivers should have completed the extreme weather course. By January 1st our drivers need to complete hazards of speeding and defensive driving courses. Again, if you plan to tow a vehicle you must complete the towing safety course before you check out your vehicle.
Please keep in mind that the safety of our students, faculty, staff, volunteers and the general public are all considerations factored into the decision of requiring this training.
