COMPANY VEHICLE RULES

At Riverside, a safety-first focus paramount for our employees, the public and the environment.

Company Vehicle Rules

Vehicles represent a very important part of the Company’s daily business. The Company has well over 100 vehicles that use public roadways every day.  These are very high exposure units, ranging from pickups to semi-tractors, as they are used on job sites and to also haul material and equipment over long distances.  The operating condition and appearance of both Company vehicles and personal vehicles being used for business purposes affect the Company’s reputation.

It is the expectation of Riverside Contracting Inc.

 

  • Drivers must have a valid driver’s license and an endorsement for the type of vehicle being operated, and keep the license(s) with them at all times while driving.
  • Vehicles are to be driven by authorized drivers only.
  • If an employee drives a company vehicle without a valid license, the employee’s employment with the company will be terminated.
  • All state traffic laws must be obeyed.
  • Drinking of alcoholic beverages while driving, or driving while under the influence of alcohol or restricted drugs is prohibited and could result in the termination of employment.
