This safety video program on DOT Reasonable Suspicion Testing Overview for Managers and Supervisors discusses the concept of reasonable suspicion, the types of situations that justify reasonable suspicion testing, and the procedures that managers and supervisors should use to administer it fairly and effectively.
Federal law specifies several situations in which motor carrier employees who perform “safety-sensitive” duties, such as drivers, are required to undergo drug or alcohol testing. One of these is when there is a “reasonable suspicion” that they may be “under the influence”.
Areas covered in the program include:
- reasonable suspicion testing,
- what makes suspicion reasonable,
- recognizing signs of substance abuse,
- how to approach the employee, 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
