Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors

We offer comprehensive DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training to help supervisors identify circumstances and indicators that may create reasonable suspicion that an employee is using or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, thus creating safer working conditions.

Why Do You Need DOT Drug and Alcohol Reasonable Suspicion Training?

Substance use in the workplace can increase the risk of accidents, safety issues and absenteeism, while lowering productivity.. It can also create hazards at work through impaired reaction times and decision-making.. To protect the safety of employees and the general public, the Department of Transportation (DOT) requires employers to provide Reasonable Suspicion Training for supervisors of safety-sensitive employees.

The objective of the training is to teach supervisors to properly monitor employee behavior, recognize signs of drug and alcohol use, and determine whether an employee should undergo a Reasonable Suspicion drug and/or alcohol tests.
