Notice to Carriers from FMCSA

Recently Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) have received numerous inquiries regarding the companies who use aggressive marketing tactics to sell supervisor training to employers may be subject to the FMCSA's drug and alcohol testing requirements.

Before entering into such training remember that FMCSA is not familiar with the companies as well as the training they offer.

According to 49 CFR §382.603 supervisors of CDL drivers should take
¤ 60 minutes of training on the symptoms of alcohol abuse

¤ Another 60 minutes of training on the symptoms of controlled usage of substances.

Employers should take the whole responsibility for meeting the training requirement of 49 CFR §382.603 ensuring that the training company from which they purchase training is providing training in the physical, behavioral, speech and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances.

The employer should select the training he should attend by considering the above mentioned guidelines.
