DOT/FMCSA Reasonable Suspicion of Drug Use Training for Supervisors


One of the most important roles your supervisor or manager performs is to protect your business, your employees, and the general public from impaired employees that are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. FMCSA 49 CFR Part 382.603 of the FMCSA regulations states each employer shall ensure 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 drug use.

HR Classroom's web-based training allows companies to ensure they have delivered this important compliance information to all employees, no matter where they are located - and document each employee's training. Your organization’s own policy can also be inserted directly into each training.
