In the United States, more than 37,000 people die in automobile accidents every year.
To help reduce these numbers, regulations are in place for transportation employers and employees holding CDLs; most prevalent of which are rules prohibiting the use of alcohol or drugs while driving or when on call.
Spotlighting illicit and prescription drug use and abuse, this course, the first course in a two-part series, introduces managers and supervisors to the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMSA) “Reasonable Suspicion” test that allows managers and supervisors to act if an employee shows signs of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Present this course so all managers and supervisors fully understand how to identify employees who may have substance abuse issues and initiate Responsible Suspicion testing to keep them off the road. This two-part course has been created to satisfy the DOT’s 2-Hour Reasonable Suspicion training requirements.
