Overview

Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs are a danger to themselves and others, especially if they are a driver of a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) or work in a "safety-sensitive position". A supervisor's ability to identify symptoms of drug and alcohol use in their employees is critical to ensuring a safe workspace.

What Is Reasonable Suspicion?

Reasonable suspicion, as applied to the workplace, is when a supervisor can, through observable facts, make a determination that an employee is under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the workplace or on the job. Only supervisors can establish reasonable suspicion and refer workers for alcohol or drug testing.

About This Course

This course will help a supervisor identify the signs and symptoms of alcohol and drug abuse at the workplace, focusing on a variety of controlled substances, including marijuana, opiates, MDMA, PCP, and cocaine; it will outline a supervisor's responsibility once he or she has established reasonable suspicion; and it will discuss the DOT regulations regarding returning to work for employees who test positive for alcohol and drugs.

Through case studies and examples, this course will not only help a supervisor recognize when an employee could be under the influence of either drugs or alcohol, but it will also teach a supervisor how to refer an employee for substance abuse testing and follow up on the situation.

Who Should Take This Course?

The DOT Reasonable Suspicion Supervisor course is intended for managers and supervisors who oversee Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) drivers and other safety-sensitive positions. A safety-sensitive position is one in which the occupation can have a direct impact on the safety of others.
