Supervisor drug and alcohol training plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety of commercial motor vehicle operations. It’s a requirement established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) under 49 CFR 382.603. This regulation mandates that supervisors of drivers operating commercial vehicles that require a commercial driver’s license must undergo specific training to address alcohol and controlled substances use.
Understanding 49 CFR 382.603
Under the provisions of 49 CFR 382.603, supervisors are required to complete 120 minutes of training – 60 minutes covering the symptoms of alcohol abuse and another 60 minutes addressing the symptoms of controlled substances use. This training equips supervisors with the necessary knowledge to identify signs of substance abuse and impairment among commercial drivers.
The training aims to empower supervisors to recognize circumstances and indicators that may raise reasonable suspicion of alcohol or drug use by drivers. By identifying these signs, supervisors can take appropriate actions to ensure the safety of the drivers, their fellow road users, and the public at large.
