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.
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.
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

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 and storage areas in
accordance with applicable fire
codes and ordinances to avoid fire
hazards. Ventilation is required to
remove flammable vapors and
fumes from gasoline powered car
storage areas. Ventilation is also
required to remove hydrogen gas
from the car storage areas during

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:
l
Properly immobilize golf car before
beginning any maintenance to avoid
any unexpected vehicle movement.
l
Properly block chassis before
working underneath golf car to avoid
any unexpected vehicle movement.
l
Before disconnecting any part of the

8-7
JW1
l
When working on the fuel system or
the battery, do not smoke, or allow
any sparks or open flames near
the vehicle, to avoid any fires or
explosions.
Before performing any maintenance,
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 to avoid electrical shock or
damage to the electrical system.
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.
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.
JW1
l
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.
l
Provide operator comment cards
to assist in identifying non-periodic
maintenance needs for specific
golf cars.
l
Maintain in a legible condition all
nameplates, warnings, and
instructions provided by the
manufacturer.

Wet Areas. Wet grass may cause
a golf car to lose traction and may
affect stability. Golf car operators
should reduce speed in wet areas
or during periods of inclement
weather.
Loose Terrain. Loose terrain may
cause a golf car to lose traction
and may affect stability. Repair
loose terrain, chain or rope off
these areas, or identify loose
terrain 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.
l
Personnel. Allow only qualified,
trained, and authorized personnel
to inspect, adjust and maintain golf
cars.
l
Parts and Materials. Use only
replacement parts and materials
recommended by the manufacturer.
l
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 flammable vapors and
fumes from gasoline powered car
storage areas. Ventilation is also
required to remove hydrogen gas
from the car storage areas during
the battery charging process.

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.
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.
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:
