! MAINTENANCE SAFETY PROGRAM
Like all machines, golf cars can
cause injury if improperly used or
maintained. This section contains
broad safety practices required for
safe golf car operation. Before golf
cars are operated, golf course personnel should establish any additional safety practices that may be
required for safe operation.
Experience has shown that golf cars
are safe when operated in accordance with the safety warnings
affixed to every golf car. This safe
operation is enhanced when golf cars
are used according to the safety rules
and practices established to meet the
terrain and conditions of the course
they are used on.
Do Not Operate Golf Cars When
Under The Influence Of Alcohol Or
Drugs
GOLF COURSE SAFETY
SURVEY

Perform safety surveys regularly to
identify hazardous areas where golf
cars should not be operated.

Steep Grades. Where steep
grades exist, restrict golf cars to
designated golf car pathways
where possible. In addition, identify
steep grades with a suitable warning like:

Warning: Steep Grade, Descend
Slowly With Foot On Brake
●
Allow only authorized people to operate golf cars. It is recommended that
only people who possess a valid
motor vehicle driver’s license be
allowed to operate golf cars.
Place operation and safety instructions recommended by the golf car
manufacturer, along with the golf
course safety rules, in a conspicuous
place near the golf car rental area or
golf car pick-up area. It is also recommended that the following warning
be posted in a conspicuous location:

The following golf course hazards
must be made safe:
●
The information contained here is
intended for golf course personnel
responsible for golf car safety. If you
are responsible for the operation and
maintenance of this golf car, we
encourage you to implement this golf
car safety program.

●
Sharp Turns, Blind Corners,
Bridge Approaches. Chain or
rope off these potentially hazardous areas or identify them with
a suitable warning describing the
nature of the hazard and the proper precautions to be taken to avoid
the hazard.
Wet Areas. Wet grass may cause a
golf car to lose traction and may
affect stability. Chain or rope off wet
areas or identify wet areas with a
suitable warning.

●
Golf Car and Pedestrian Interference. Reroute golf car traffic or
pedestrian traffic in congested
areas wherever possible to prevent
accidents. If it is impractical to
reroute traffic, erect warning signs
to warn pedestrians of golf car traffic, and to warn golf car operators to
drive slowly, use caution, and watch
for pedestrians.

MAINTENANCE
REQUIRED FOR GOLF
CAR SAFETY
7
Practice the following to help ensure
the safety of golf car operators:
8
●
Preventative Maintenance. Perform all scheduled maintenance in
accordance with manufacturer’s
recommendations to provide the
golfing patron with a safe, properly
operating golf car.
●
Personnel. Allow only qualified,
trained, and authorized personnel
to inspect, adjust, and maintain golf
cars.
●
Parts and Materials. Use only
replacement parts and materials
recommended by the manufacturer.
9
10
11
4-2
●
Ventilation. Properly ventilate all
maintenance and storage areas in
accordance with applicable fire
codes and ordinances to avoid fire
hazards. Ventilation is required to
remove hydrogen gas from electric
powered car storage areas during
the charging process.
For electric powered golf cars, the
amount of hydrogen gas emitted during charging depends on a number of
factors, such as the condition of the
batteries, the output rate of the battery charger, and the amount of time
the batteries are on charge. Because
of the highly volatile nature of hydrogen gas and its propensity to rise and
accumulate at the ceiling in pockets, a
minimum of 5 air changes per hour is
recommended. Consult applicable fire
and safety codes for the specific ventilation levels requirement, as well as
requirements for the use of explosion
proof electrical apparatus.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
DURING MAINTENANCE
When performing maintenance, follow all safety instructions contained
in the manufacturer’s operation and
service manuals, as well as the following safety procedures:
●
Properly immobilize golf car before
beginning any maintenance.
●
Properly block chassis before
working underneath golf car.
●
Avoid fire hazards, and have appropriate fire protection equipment

Before working on an electric golf
car, disable the car’s electrical system in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
●
Use only properly insulated tools
when working on electrically powered golf cars or around batteries.
●
Maintain all safety devices including brakes, steering mechanisms,
warning devices, and governors, in
a safe operating condition. Do not
modify these safety devices as
supplied by the manufacturer.
●
●
Record all maintenance performed
in a maintenance record log by
date, name of person performing
maintenance, and type of maintenance. Periodically inspect maintenance log to ensure accurate and
complete entries.
●
Provide operator comment cards to
assist in identifying non-periodic
maintenance needs for specific golf
cars.
●
Maintain in a legible condition all
nameplates, warnings, and instructions provided by the manufacturer.
●
If new nameplates, warnings, or
instructions are needed, contact
your Yamaha dealer.
STORAGE AND
BATTERY CHARGING
●
After each maintenance or repair,
the car must be driven by a qualified, trained, and authorized person – in an area free of pedestrian
traffic – to ensure proper operation
and adjustment.
Only use battery changing and
charging facilities and procedures
that are in accordance with applicable ordinances and regulations.
Periodically inspect charging facilities and procedures to be certain
that applicable safety codes, regulations, and procedures are being
followed.

●
Before charging: only add distilled
water if fluid is below the top of the
plates, and then add just enough to
cover plates.
●
After charging: check that the fluid
level is approximately 1/4 to 1/2
inch above the plates and 1/4 to 3/8
inch below the level indicator. If the
fluid level is low, carefully add distilled water. Adding distilled water
after charging prevents boil over.
