Drivers carry safety to the road—lives and livelihoods depend on it. Through its Drug and Alcohol testing programs, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) helps drivers and motor carriers, including owner-operators, improve safety performance and compliance to help make sure everyone gets home safely. Every trucking company, owner operator, fleet owner, and driver of a commercial motor vehicle is regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulations regarding Drug and Alcohol testing.
The rules and regulations mandated by the FMCSA regarding drug and alcohol testing are very specific. Violations of these rules and regulations can result in fines and litigation. Also, the legal liabilities for not following proper protocol when testing for reasonable suspicion can be costly.
This presentation by expert speaker Mark Dixon will help you improve your understanding of the rules and regulations for Reasonable Suspicion Drug and Alcohol testing. Learn the proper protocol to follow to alleviate all legal implications or repercussions. Understand the signs, symptoms, and behaviors associated with each drug and alcohol substance abuse, and the procedures for observation and testing. Get a better view of your exact duties and responsibilities to avoid any adverse consequences caused by negligence.
