What supervisors need to know is what to look for and what to do if someone seems unfit for duty. Supervisors will know not only how and when to do reasonable suspicion testing but why they need to do it.

To provide training and support for the supervisor who may have to make a reasonable suspicion determination the training will cover the following issues:

  • The Effects of Alcohol and Drugs in the Workplace

  • 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
