CFR 49 Drug Testing Regulations: What Supervisors Who Confront and Refer to Testing Should Know About the Law
What if supervisors don't refer employees to testing who appear drunk on the job--even after the supervisors have been educated and trained to do so? Good question. This happens.
That's why we created this presentation or course entitled "CFR 49 Drug Testing Regulations for Reasonable Suspicion Training. With this course, you will have fewer supervisors pleading ignorance and jeopardizing your organization for being in non-compliance with the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 that act requires drug and alcohol testing of safety-sensitive transportation employees in aviation, trucking, railroads, mass transit, pipelines, and other transportation industries.
You can forget having supervisors confront and refer employees if they don't know what the law says about their responsibility or how the whole drug testing referral process works. Sure, ideally it would great to have supervisors trained in drugs of abuse and what alcohol abuse on the job looks like, but there is a also a public law that mandates a drug free workplace policy for DOT regulated industries, and supervisors better understand this law is about. If the do so, they follow through and properly respond to more inappropriate alcohol or drug fueled behavior on the job. This means not ignoring employees who appear under the influence like many do even after they have been trained.
This product takes care of this knowledge gap problem effectively. It leaves no supervisor wondering what their responsibility is with regard to reasonable suspicion training and confronting employees who appear to be under the influence.
CFR 49 Drug Testing Regulations Training educates and trains supervisors in all the key definitions, how testing works, and the steps for getting an employee to the testing facility. We also explain what happens when employees get there so their is mystery in reasonable suspicion training.
After training, may EAPs, HR managers, and training pros assume excited and impressed supervisors with insight will naturally remember everything they have been told so when the time comes, they will confront an employee with alcohol on the breath and refer them to testing. Unfortunately, it does happen as easily as one might assume.. Instead more risk is created among supervisors who are still more interested in avoiding employees who used substances, rather than following through and confronting there workers.After all they training was interesting, even exciting
