This safety video program on DOT Reasonable Suspicion Testing Overview for Managers and Supervisors discusses the concept of reasonable suspicion testing, how managers and supervisors can administer the regulation fairly and effectively, and the new oral fluids testing method.
Under federal law, managers who suspect that a commercial driver has a substance use disorder or is actually impaired are required to send the employee for immediate drug and alcohol testing. Called “reasonable suspicion” testing, it is one of the six situations in which motor carrier employees who perform “safety-sensitive” duties, such as driving, are required to undergo drug and alcohol testing. By getting impaired drivers off the road, reasonable suspicion testing can help prevent road accidents, injuries, and fatalities.
Areas covered in the program include:
- reasonable suspicion testing,
- what makes suspicion reasonable,
- recognizing signs of substance use disorders,
- approaching employees who may be impaired, and more.
The safety video program comes with a quiz, a scheduling and attendance form, a training certificate, and an employee training log.
- 49 CFR Part 199 – Drug and Alcohol Testing
