Substance Abuse Awareness Training, Testing, and Compliance Technical Brief

Resource Created By:

Subject: Safety and Security, Drug and Alcohol

Format Type: Technical Briefs

Publish Date: 4/25/2017

Abstract
Anyone designated by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) as a safety-sensitive employee is subject to DOT drug and alcohol testing. But what does “safety-sensitive” mean? The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) states that “Operators of revenue service vehicles, CDL-holding operators of nonrevenue service vehicles, vehicle controllers, revenue service vehicle mechanics, firearm-carrying security personnel” all qualify as safety-sensitive, while the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) mandates that anyone who holds a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) and operates a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) is a safety-sensitive employee. This brief will provide guidance for employers who must train and test safety-sensitive employees for drug and alcohol use and misuse, and prepare employees for what to expect.

Substance Abuse Awareness Training

Resource Created By: National RTAP

Subject: Drug and Alcohol, Transit Operators, Products

Format Type: Training Modules

Publish Date: 8/18/2016

Abstract
This online training is available on the National RTAP eLearning portal at http://elearning.nationalrtap.org/.  

The FTA drug and alcohol testing regulation (§655.14(b)) requires a minimum of sixty (60) minutes of training for all safety-sensitive employees on the effects and consequences of prohibited drug use on personal health, safety, and the work environment. 

This Substance Abuse Awareness Training addresses the signs and symptoms that may indicate drug use. Upon completion, users are awarded a certificate in their name with a time stamp showing the duration it took to complete the module (minimum of 60 minutes).  The average time to complete the program is 90 minutes.

The typical end user will be transit staff and management, such as drivers, maintenance personnel, dispatchers, and managers, who will access the online training via personal computers or tablet devices. Managers can track learner progress and access reports in order to document compliance with training requirements. 

The course has two modules. The first is untimed and provides an overview of the course navigation, information about FTA's substance abuse program and general awareness about the dangers of alcohol misuse on the individual’s health, work, and personal life, as well as signs and symptoms of an alcohol problem.  

The second module on prohibited drugs is timed, and includes five sections. The module must take a minimum of one hour to complete to receive credit for the course. Knowledge will be tested after each drug section with a series of questions. 

The course includes links to videos about drugs and alcohol, and features narration and closed captioning, as well as a table of contents in order to revisit content as needed.

This training module was originally developed by Oregon DOT in partnership with RLS & Associates, Inc for the transittrains.com website. National RTAP adapted the course for widespread use.

Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medications Toolkit

Resource Created By: Federal Transit Administration (FTA)

Subject: Drug and Alcohol

Format Type: Research and Reports

Publish Date: 4/1/2011

Abstract
The policies, procedures, and other information contained in this Prescription and Over-the-Counter (Rx/OTC Medications) Toolkit does not constitute Federal Regulation. The content is a presentation of the best practices and model forms and policies being used at various transit systems throughout the U.S. at the writing of this Toolkit. This Toolkit is a compilation of policies, procedures, forms, and training resources that represent the best practices being used throughout the U.S. by a variety of transit systems. For the transit systems that have yet to address the use of Rx/OTC medications by safety-sensitive employees, this Toolkit will serve as a baseline for implementing such a program. It will also be a useful toolkit for those transit systems that are currently reviewing their existing programs and can serve to enhance or expand those programs.
