Vehicles of all varieties are used by staff and students to support the programs and activities on and off campus. Given the number of miles driven by many different drivers with different experience levels it is necessary to manage the risks associated with this exposure to avoid accidents, injuries, and property damage to the university and general public. This session will discuss how Purdue developed their Transportation Safety Policy that accommodates departments and drivers’ needs while advancing key transportation safety principals.

As a result of participating in this session attendees will learn how Purdue strategized, assembled their committee with key stakeholders, obtained broad input, and ironed out issues before implementation for a smooth rollout to faculty, staff, students, and volunteers.
