Valuable Information to Help You Protect Your Ministry
When it comes to driving an automobile it's important to remember that not all cars are created equal. The way you maneuver on an exit ramp varies depending on whether you're in a Civic, F150, 15 Passenger Van or a Bus. Just because you know how to drive one vehicle safely doesn't mean you're automatically proficient in all, despite having that little thing called a driver's license.
This is why driver training is vital for your ministry. Whether you run a bus route or occasionally use the church van for youth group outings, educating the people who drive your vehicles is a must and documenting that education is just as important.
As part of our Ministry Risk Management System, we make driver training simple and easy. Log onto our website and select the the Ministry Risk Management Tab. In the drop down menu you will see Church Video Library. Select the Auto Safety Video section.
Underneath each video you will see a form asking you to enter the names of the people who are watching the video along with your church information. This is where the documentation part comes in. If your church van was in an accident involving severe injuries or fatalities, the first thing a lawyer is going to ask is, "Did you do any sort of driver training? If so, can you prove it? What documented evidence do you have?" If you've watched our videos, and submitted the names of the drivers who did the training you can answer yes. If your answer is no, you now have a valid reason to sit in front of the computer and watch videos!
So gather up your drivers, document their training and in the mean time enjoy the bus driver training video below!
