What is a Driver commitment statement form?

A driver commitment statement is a document that employees sign to indicate their understanding of the company's expectations for safe driving. It typically includes a list of rules and regulations that employees agree to follow, such as obeying traffic laws, not driving while impaired, and using a seatbelt. The statement may also include a pledge to report any accidents or near-accidents to their supervisor immediately.

Driver commitment statements are an important part of a company's safety program. They help to ensure that employees are aware of the risks associated with driving and that they are committed to driving safely. By signing a driver commitment statement, employees are agreeing to take responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others on the road.
