Reasonable Suspicion Supervisor Training
The Department of Transportation (DOT) has specific requirements for those supervisors who have been designated to supervise Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) drivers.
Section 49 CFR 382.603 requires that all persons designated to supervise drivers receive at least 60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse, and an additional 60 minutes of training on controlled substances use. This required training is used by supervisors to identify circumstances and indicators that may create reasonable suspicion that a driver is using or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and warrant a referral of an employee for testing.
We at MCC Drug and Alcohol Screening recognize these situations are stressful; therefore, we aim to equip the supervisor with the tools necessary to properly navigate this uncertain territory. A trained supervisor is a deterrent to substance use within the company, and they are paramount in keeping both the workplace and community safe.
