Sample Guideline for High-Risk Driver Identification and Management

Identification of High-Risk Drivers
A High-Risk Driver is defined as a Company Driver or authorized spouse/domestic partner or dependent who:
  1. Has had three or more unrelated collisions and/or moving violations in the last three years or
  2. Has had two unrelated collisions and/or moving violations in the last six months or
  3. Illegally (as defined by the applicable local laws) left the scene of a collision in the last three years or
  4. Has had an "at-fault" (as defined by the applicable local laws) fatal collision in the last three years or
  5. Has had his or her driver's license suspended or revoked in the last three years or
  6. Has had an impaired-driving moving violation in the last three years or
  7. Has been identified as High-Risk through the Company's IVMS feedback program.
Management of High-Risk Drivers:
Management of Drivers who are identified as "At-Risk" per the monitoring and assessment processes:
  1. Must participate in re-training as described in the Training Guideline.
  2. At-Risk Drivers may not drive Medium or Heavy Vehicles.
  3. At a minimum, the At-Risk Driver’s Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) will be reviewed 12 months after classification as an At-Risk Driver.
  4. Any disciplinary action for an At-Risk Driver who disregards intervention, refuses to participate in intervention efforts, or is repeatedly identified as an At-Risk Driver shall be referred to Human Resources.
  5. The Company may take disciplinary action, up to termination, against Company Drivers who maintain an At-Risk Driver classification for more than two years.
  6. Any spouse or domestic partner identified as At-Risk shall be prohibited from driving a company- owned or leased vehicle.
Although an impaired-driving moving violation involving alcohol, illicit drugs, or prescription drugs does count toward the assessment of a driver's at-risk status, any further Company decisions or actions in response to such a violation shall be referred to Human Resources.
