On June 26th, 2019 the Trucking Association of New York (TANY) will host DOT 101/ Drug & Alcohol Reasonable Suspicion Supervisor Training at the LaGuardia Plaza Hotel. Companies who operate trucks in New York City should really attend. Speakers include Jonathan Nicastro, Chief Motor Carrier Investigator with New York State DOT, Jean Paul Paraskevas, Supervising Motor Carrier Investigator with New York State DOT, and John and Beth McGuire, drug recognition experts with High Ride Consulting.
New York State Department of Transportation representatives will present DOT 101 training which includes topics such as the future of CSA, DataQ requests, lessons learned from ELDs so far and how best to prepare for a DOT audit. Questions are encouraged for attendees to get the most from the training sessions.
The Drug and Alcohol Reasonable Suspicion Supervisor Training will educate attendees on driving impairment and what it means to highway safety in order to reduce the number of fatalities and injuries on highways and in the workplace. It will help attendees learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of impairment from alcohol, illicit drugs and prescription drug use, as well as to serve as a guide for establishing programs and practices within an organization.
This training meets the DOT 49 CFR 382.603 regulation which requires supervisors of commercial motor vehicle drivers who operate vehicles that require a commercial driver license to take 60 minutes of training on the symptoms of alcohol abuse and another 60 minutes of training on the symptoms of controlled substance use (120 minutes in total). A question and answer period will follow each session and a certificate of participation will be provided via email.
