Supervisor Reasonable Suspicion Testing & Employee Education Training

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires supervisors of commercial motor vehicle drivers who operate vehicles that require a commercial driver’s license (CDL) to undergo specialized training as per 49 CFR 382.603. This training is designed to help supervisors identify and respond to situations where there is a reasonable suspicion that a driver may be under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances.

The primary goal of this training is to create a safer work environment and ensure compliance with FMCSA regulations. Supervisors learn to identify circumstances and indicators that may suggest a driver is using or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, such as physical appearance, behavior, speech, and performance changes. This knowledge allows supervisors to take appropriate action, including referring the employee for testing, to maintain a drug- and alcohol-free workplace.

In addition to supervisor training, employers must also provide educational materials to employees regarding the effects and consequences of alcohol and controlled substance use on personal health, safety, and the work environment. This education should include information on the employer’s policies, testing procedures, and available resources for employees who may be struggling with substance abuse issues.
