Part I: DOT Reasonable Suspicion Testing for Managers and Supervisors

This two-part course has been created to satisfy the DOT's 2-Hour Reasonable Suspicion training requirements.

To help ensure that drivers of commercial vehicles, as well as other transportation employees with “safety sensitive” jobs such as mechanics and warehouse workers, stay drug- and alcohol-free, the Federal Transportation Employee Testing Act requires motor carriers to establish rigorous drug and alcohol testing programs. Part 1 of this two-part course discusses:

  • DOT/FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Regulations
  • An Overview of “Reasonable Suspicion” Testing
  • What Makes Suspicion “Reasonable”?
  • General Signs of Substance Abuse
  • Behavioral Signs of Drug Abuse
  • Physical Signs of Drug Abuse

Part 2 discusses the “indicators” of drug use and alcohol consumption, and when to consider sending an employee for a “Reasonable Suspicion” test.
