Call us or email us to see what types of training you are required to have. Many employers are required to provide training for Employees and Supervisors. Covered employees must receive at least 60 minutes on the effects and consequences of prohibited drug use on personal health, safety, and the work environment and on the signs and symptoms that may indicate prohibited drug use (FTA, 49 CFR 655.14) .The Supervisor training consists of 1 hour of training on alcohol misuse and an additional hour of training on controlled substance use (FMCSA, 49 CFR Part 382 and FTA, Part 655). The training is to be used to determine whether reasonable suspicion exists to require a driver to undergo testing. The training includes physical behavioral speech and performance indicators of probable alcohol and controlled substance misuse.
Some state drug free workplace programs (e.g. Tennessee Drug Free Workplace T.C.A. Section 50-9-101) also require an annual training analogous to that listed above.
NTS provides on-site training and other educational materials to meet these requirements. To find out more about these trainings contact us by email or by phone 615-353-1888.
