As a supervisor of those with safety-sensitive positions, such as operating a motor vehicle, you have an obligation to address a situation if you have reasonable suspicion to suspect an employee is abusing alcohol or other drugs and they are under the influence.

This course discusses reasonable suspicion testing based on DOT drug and alcohol testing requirements for the workplace. This course covers what is meant by “reasonable suspicion,“ how to recognize signs and symptoms of substance abuse, and how to approach the matter with an employee.
