Risk Management


Defensive Driving

Pursuant to the DU Driving Policy, all personnel who drive vehicles for the University must pass the online Defensive Driving Course.  To enroll in the course, send an email to with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your preferred email address
  • Your division and department

The online course takes 45-60 minutes to complete.  Upon completion, you will be presented with an online certificate, which you should print and retain as confirmation of successful completion of the course.

All DU personnel who drive vehicles for the University must also have a satisfactory driving record.  When you request enrollment in the Defensive Driving Course, we will initiate a check of you motor vehicle driving record (MVR).  After requesting enrollment, be on the lookout for an e-mail from HireRight requesting information that you need to provide in order to complete the MVR check.  Criteria used to determine whether an MVR is acceptable to allow for DU driving privileges are found in the DU Driving Policy.

safety Training Programs

Check DU's Environmental Health & Safety website for training for University employees covering a number of general safety topics.  Because of the hazards associated with their job duties many DU employees are required by law to attend safety training. Some training is offered online and usually requires a short quiz to be taken to verify content comprehension.
