Who Is Required To Take Supervisor Training?

Drug and alcohol abuse can have serious consequences, affecting both individuals dealing with addiction and employers. These issues are particularly concerning in the transportation sector, as they can compromise a driver's ability to safely transport passengers and lead to accidents, injuries, and legal repercussions. DOT (Department of Transportation) drug testing supervisor training is essential to address these challenges.

Who needs DOT drug testing supervisor training? According to U.S. government regulations, any supervisor responsible for referring employees for drug and alcohol testing must complete a qualifying training program. Furthermore, all transportation companies must adhere to these rules regardless of their size. In the past, smaller companies with fewer than 50 covered employees could opt out, but this changed in the late 1990s.

It's not limited to supervisors alone. The government mandates that all transportation safety personnel, dispatch personnel, HR employees, truck drivers, and training instructors complete a qualifying course.

While DOT drug testing supervisor training programs may vary among providers, they must meet specific criteria. All courses must be at least 120 minutes long, with 60 minutes dedicated to alcohol abuse and another 60 minutes to controlled substance use and abuse. In these sessions, attendees will learn how to:

  • Understand the impact of drug and alcohol abuse
  • Recognize the potential consequences of unreported abuse
  • Implement and enforce company-wide alcohol and drug use policies
  • Report employees suspected of drug and alcohol abuse

DOT drug testing supervisor training aims to create a safer environment and provide support to employees struggling with substance abuse or alcohol addiction. If you work for a DOT-regulated company, chances are that this training is required. Enroll in a qualified program today to ensure compliance with federal and state mandates.
