Reasonable suspicion testing is required when an employer has reasonable suspicion to believe that the driver has violated the drug and alcohol use prohibitions. In that regard, the rules require that the employer receive at least one hour of drug use detection methods training and one hour of alcohol use and abuse detection methods training. Your drug and alcohol testing program may be able to assist you in receiving this required training.
For drivers found to be in violation of the drug and alcohol use regulations, certain return-to-duty testing and follow-up testing rules are required. These rules should be reviewed and carried out in those cases.
