This new online course featuring Bill Judge, nationally known DOT Drug Law Expert, is designed to help you meet the DOT training requirements for supervisors of covered safety-sensitive employees as described in 49 CFR Part 40. The training materials address reasonable suspicion as a performance issue, and as something in reality they are already doing.

What supervisors need to know is what to look for and what to do if someone seems unfit for duty. Using the Four Steps of Constructive Confrontation and Documentation developed by the U.S. Navy and in practice nationally over the last fourteen years, supervisors can now take action knowing they are protecting everyone. Supervisors will know not only how and when to do reasonable suspicion/cause testing but why they need to do it.

  • The Effects of Alcohol and Drugs in the Workplace
  • The Role of the Supervisor in a DOT Testing Program
  • Signs, Symptoms, and Behavioral Indicators of the DOT 5 Prohibited
  • Drugs and Alcohol Misuse:
  • Prohibited Behavior and Prescription Drug Use
  • How to Recognize and Document Performance using the Behavior
  • Observation Checklist
  • How to apply the Four Steps of Constructive Confrontation
  • How to handle employee defense strategies
  • What to do when:
  • An employee refuses to be tested
  • A supervisor receives hearsay information
  • An employee discovers a suspicious substance
  • An employee who leaves the worksite without authorization after being unfit for duty

Do It Right! Reasonable Suspicion Pocket Guide:
