SUPERVISORS F.I.R.S.T.
(Federal Industrial Reasonable Suspicion Training)
 

This is the industrial training that you've been looking for, and your people will actually enjoy this experience.

This training is for "supervisors and company officials" with responsibility for "safety sensitive" employees. It includes physical, behavioral, speech and performance indicators, as well as the physiological, mood/personality and clinical changes associated with the use of stimulants, depressants including alcohol, hallucinogens and psycho-hypnotic substances commonly in use. Critical performance, decision making, and safety issues are emphasized. Covering the use of both alcohol and street drugs, this training exceeds requirements of DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) 49 CFR, 382.603, which requires such training for supervisors and company officials.

(Ref. 49 CFR, 382.307(c) "Reasonable Suspicion Testing".)

49 CFR Part 40, 382.603 - Who Is This For?

The Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 requires drug and alcohol testing of safety-sensitive transportation employees in aviation, trucking, railroads, mass transit, pipelines and other transportation industries, and the training of their supervisors in the recognition of substance abuse. These regulations cover all transportation employers, safety-sensitive transportation employees and service agents -roughly 12.1 million people. This law affects virtually all workers in "safety sensitive" jobs from airline pilots to truckers, as well as workers who have a hand in manufacturing critical parts. If your organization's employees work in any "safety-sensitive" areas related to the above, please call or e-mail to schedule training for your supervisors or the entire workforce. If you are unsure, contact us, or the Department of Transportation at (www.dot.gov) for guidance.

CERTIFICATION

The Alcohol Exposed Foundation issues a completion certificate for each attendee. A copy should be made for the personnel file. Our instructors are qualified expert witnesses in court. We maintain records and can testify as needed, to the training and certification.

INVESTIGATE BEFORE YOU INVEST!

Beware of "packaged programs" that can charge $250. or more per person, and then there is usually nobody to verify who actually completed the program. Our prices will make you smile, and you will have everyone certified in less than 3 hours. Just call or e-mail for a quote, and be sure to bookmark this link.

Alcohol Exposed Foundation trainers tailor each presentation to the audience, and to the geographical area, highlighting the most abused drugs in the area.

Our presentations are inter-active. Audience participation and discussion are encouraged.

We stand behind our certificates. Can the provider of "packaged" material actually testify to the identity of the person in front of a computer screen or video monitor?

Handout material includes a permanent reference file with supplementary software.

Discounted insurance premiums are available from many companies resulting from this training. This is a true risk management tool.

Supervisors and company officials are only required to complete this training once, so take advantage of those training sessions and safety stand-downs already scheduled. Have everybody certified together.

Training references are available upon request. Contact us at 703/780-9150 or e-mail: alcotaz@hotmail.com to schedule training for your group. Our service area includes the entire U.S. and territories.

We are actively engaged in providing substance abuse prevention training to educational and other community groups upon request. Your patronage is responsible for our ability to continue in this effort.

About Federal Regulations

"Roughly 12.1 million people performing safety-sensitive transportation jobs are covered by DOT drug & alcohol regulations."
(Source: USDOT Office of Drug & Alcohol Policy & Compliance Fact Sheet)

"The Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 requires drug and alcohol testing of safety-sensitive transportation employees in aviation, trucking, railroads, mass transit, pipelines and other transportation industries. These regulations cover all transportation employers, safety-sensitive transportation employees and service agents-roughly 12.1 million people".

Training provided by the Alcohol Exposed Foundation exceeds requirements of DOT 49 CFR, 382.307 "Reasonable Suspicion Testing", and 382.603 "Training for supervisors".

From 382.307(c) "The required observations for alcohol and/or controlled substances reasonable suspicion testing shall be made by a supervisor or company official who is trained in accordance with 382.603."

382.603.Training for supervisors: "Each employer shall ensure that all persons designated to supervise drivers receive at least 60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse and receive at least an additional 60 minutes of training on controlled substances use. The training will be used by the supervisors to determine whether reasonable suspicion exists to require a driver to undergo testing under §382.307. The training shall include the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances. Recurrent training for supervisory personnel is not required."

Federal Transit Administration Regulation 655.14 parallels this requirement, and further requires that "Covered employees must receive at least 60 minutes of training 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."

Alcohol Exposed Foundation training includes all of the above, plus identification of street drugs to include associated slang terms, common packaging, methods of use, and behavioral traits, physical indicators and abnormalities. Our training is adapted to specific needs and audiences. Attendees receive a completion certificate.

Please keep in mind that our presentations are often quite lively. Some situations, experiences and methods of use covered are humerous, therefore spontaneous laughter is typical at times.
