"This DOT supervisor training program in drug and alcohol awareness was easy for me to modify to meet my needs today—exactly what I was looking for. I needed to develop a course quickly, but I didn't want to kill myself doing it. The content was well developed and broad enough that I could adjust the run time by dropping a few slides rather than having to add slides to make it longer. Thanks!"

Non-DOT or DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors

The only difference between Non-DOT and DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors is the length. The U.S. Department of Transportation does not specify what the content of the course should include other than the types of drug categories that must be examined, the performance signs and symptoms, the signs and symptoms of use, the effect on performance abilities, and the like. And content must examine alcohol for one hour and other drugs of abuse for one hour.

No content in an alcohol and drug awareness course required by the U.S. Department of Transportation needs to talk about the regulations, driving skills, trucks, pipelines, transportation, or any such thing.

Content for Non-DOT or DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors includes common licit and illicit drugs. This is includes marijuana and alcohol. When you training employees, always educate around the required drug categories and types, but avoid discussions in depth concerning steroids, nicotine, and caffeine. These are problematic drugs of abuse, but they are not included in training because they are generally without comparative risk, psychoactive impact on the mind, psychological and social problems, crime, and severeness of economic impact.
Alcohol is the #1 drug problem in America; Marijuana is 2nd the most commonly used illicit drug; and, cocaine is third. So, include information about these substances and the use frequency.

Have a discussion about the economic impact of substance abuse. It is now approximately $300 billion is lost productivity in the USA. In films about DOT Training, the figure of $120 billion was commonly cited. The latest figure is about $300 billion from my understanding. Also discuss alcohol abuse and alcoholism and clear up myths and misconceptions about it.

This link will show you the total number of slides in the drug and alcohol training program. Note that the first 65 slides are removed from the DOT reasonable suspicion training in order to create the non-DOT reasonable suspicion training: Reasonable suspicion training .
Non-DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors

Alcohol or drug addicts with job problems who are in denial about their addiction are often convinced that other problems cause their job performance shortcomings.  Such employees are able to convince the supervisor that these other problems are primary.  Consequently, your DOT supervisor training should also include issues around denial to bust up supervisor enabling.

This is the first step toward prolonged toleration of performance problems by supervisors.  They become convinced they understand the employee’s problems and begin to accommodate tolerate these problems as they grow worse.  (Spouses of alcoholics do the same thing.) Reasonable Suspicion Training will train supervisors on how to handle these situations.

Denial is a defense mechanism that works hand-in-hand with myths and misconceptions about addiction.  Denial is used to avoid awareness and is reinforced by others who are willing to participate in it. If there is reasonable drug suspicion the supervisor needs to take action.

By the time an employee’s alcohol or drug problem affects the work situation, he or she usually knows there is a fuzzy relationship between life’s problems and the alcohol or drug use.  This, however, does not mean the addict will talk about it or is self-diagnosed.  Far from it.  Still, this reality is what makes referral and treatment possible. As a result of your course on Non-DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors, your leadership will take action. They won't be fooled. And an addict may very well think more about getting treatment when they sense knowledgeable  supervisors in the company. An addict does not have to want help in order for it to work. They only need to feel urgency.  Well training supervisors in Non-DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training will be a unique force supporting health and wellness in your company. Non-DOT Drug and Alcohol Training can be completed in no time at all.
