Reasonable Suspicion Training 1/3 Skill Builder Credit
Reasonable suspicion is a consistent tool and set of procedures to deter substance abuse, to protect workplace safety, and to identify employees who need help resolving problems associated with drug or alcohol abuse. The training provides awareness of the impacts drug and alcohol abuse can have in the workplace.
49CFR 382.603 is the applicable DOT regulation requiring supervisors of drivers who operate vehicles that require a commercial driver license to take 60 minutes of training on the symptoms of alcohol abuse and another 60 minutes of training on the symptoms of controlled substance use (120 minutes in total).
The purpose of this training is to teach supervisors to identify circumstances and indicators that may create reasonable suspicion that a driver is using or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, supporting referral of an employee for testing.
Who Should Attend
