DOT Reasonable Suspicion Testing for Managers and Supervisors: Part II
Available for MP4 video download by purchasing a corporate or single-site license.
In Part I of this program on "Reasonable Suspicion," we discussed the responsibilities of managers and supervisors in making sure that drivers of commercial vehicles and other transportation employees with "safety-sensitive" jobs are not under the influence of drugs while they are working. But drugs are not the only substances employees can use that impair their judgement and affect their ability to perform their job safely. Alcohol can be a serious problem as well, so it is important to know the indicators of alcohol consumption, and when to consider sending an employee for a "Reasonable Suspicion" test.
This program discusses the behavioral and physical signs that someone has been drinking, how alcohol and drug tests are conducted, the "Removal-From-Work" and "Return-To-Duty" processes, and more.
