Department of Transportation (DOT) Drug and Alcohol Education for Employees

Onsite

Tags: Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Participants in this training learn about specific rules that apply to their positions, as well as the effects of substance abuse in the workplace. Using case studies, participants are able to put themselves in their supervisor's shoes to determine how to apply the DOT "Reasonable Suspicion" regulations.

Department of Transportation (DOT) Drug and Alcohol Education for Employees

The purpose of the DOT regulations is “to prevent, through deterrence and detection, alcohol and controlled substance users from performing safety- sensitive functions.” Managers and supervisors must be keen observers and use constructive confrontation to deal with this volatile issue and comply with DOT regulations. Participants in this seminar learn how to recognize signs of substance abuse as job and performance problems and DOT violations, constructively address these problems with employees, identify employee appearance and behaviors that trigger reasonable suspicion drug tests, and implement the organization’s substance abuse policies.

Duration 60-90 Minutes.

Contact your MIIA Risk Manager to discuss requests for specific programming.
