Available for MP4 video download by purchasing a corporate or single-site license.
Everyone knows that alcohol, drugs, and driving don't mix. Yet, drivers who are "under the influence" are still a major cause of accidents. 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.
This program discusses the Department of Transportation's drug and alcohol regulations, the concept of "Reasonable Suspicion," situations that justify Reasonable Suspicion testing, signs that an employee may be using drugs, and the procedures that managers and supervisors should use to administer Reasonable Suspicion testing fairly and effectively.
