Ultimate DOT Training – Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) and Reasonable Suspicion Training
October 30 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Transportation is a huge area of liability exposure for contractors. The BTEA and our safety consultant Contractors Risk Management (CRM) are teaming up to offer a training for supervisors who manage commercial drivers. This training will include the 7 BASIC (Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories) and a Reasonable Suspicion Training.
These 7 BASICs include:
- Unsafe Driving Practices
- Driver Fitness – Hours of Service
- Controlled Substances
- Crash Indicators
- Vehicle Maintenance
- Hazardous Materials
Reasonable Suspicion Training is used by the supervisors to determine whether justification exists to intervene with an employee who appears to be actively under the influence. The training includes the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances. Recurrent training for supervisory personnel is not required. We include several real interactive scenarios where the student learns how outside influences can affect a person’s demeanor, examples include but are not limited to; Low sugar reaction for the diabetic, prescription drug and over the counter drugs with interacting on each other. And of course, the “in your face situation where evidence of alcohol or drugs is visibly present.
The seminar will be conducted by Bruce Lawler, a former New Hampshire State Trooper and DOT compliance specialist.
