Harvest Approved Driver Standards & Requirements
Liability insurance is in place to protect the church and in no way replaces personal driver liability; employees are responsible for infractions that may result from their use of fleet or rented vehicles, such as speeding or parking infractions. If an employee is involved in an accident with Harvest fleet or rented vehicles or equipment, a police report must be secured.
