What's Included

  • (1) Video Training Book containing a 24-minute main program video
    • Introduction
      • Opens with a scenario in which a supervisor confronts a driver who he suspects may be impaired. The driver denies being impaired.
      •  Addresses the goals and importance of the reasonable suspicion determination.
    • The Regulations
      • Discusses the supervisor’s responsibilities in the determination of reasonable suspicion process (as well as the definition of “supervisor”).
      • Covers the regulatory prohibitions for alcohol misuse and drug use.
    • The Reasonable Suspicion Process
      • Addresses the five essential components of the reasonable suspicion process: observation, confirmation, documentation, confrontation, and testing.
    • Scenario 1
      • The opening scenario is revisited, and each essential element of the reasonable suspicion process is called out as the supervisor applies them.
      • Additional detail on observation requirements is provided.
      • Additional information on documentation requirements is provided.
    • Scenario 2
      • Scenario 2 tracks the five essential elements when a supervisor witnesses a driver dropping what appears to be marijuana. The driver denies that the marijuana is his, becomes belligerent, and refuses to be tested.
      • Additional information on the consequences of refusing to take a test is provided.
    • Common Behavioral Indicators
      • A substance abuse professional describes some typical observable indications that a person may be misusing alcohol or using drugs, and how important these observations are to completing required documentation.
    • Confrontation Techniques
      • Replays the confrontation portions of Scenarios 1 and 2, and acknowledges that the confrontation part of the process is often the most difficult.
      • A substance abuse professional talks about the importance of training to help get supervisors comfortable with confrontations, and provides a few tips for speaking to the driver about being sent for testing.
    • Scenario 3
      • Scenario 3 tracks the five essential elements when a supervisor witnesses a driver behaving in an uncharacteristic manner. The driver self-admits to having a substance abuse problem and cries.
      • Goes into additional detail on self-admission (driver still has to undergo testing), and best practices to follow when arranging to have the driver transported for testing and referring them to an employee assistance program.
    • Conclusion
      • Reiterates the goals and importance of the reasonable suspicion determination, and that sending a driver in for testing cannot be arbitrary.
      • Revisits Scenario 1, and how the supervisor’s reasonable suspicion determination helped the driver get the medical help he needed.
