DOT: Drug and Alcohol Awareness

Drug and alcohol abuse by employees is a common cause of workplace problems, such as accidents and ineffective work practices, in the US today. These problems can affect profits and expose companies to increased medical and insurance costs, and any related financial loss due to compensation. Several US laws have been enacted to combat drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace. The Department of Transportation (DOT) interprets these laws and provides employers who are responsible for transportation employees with guidelines for setting up effective drug-free programs. These guidelines encourage employees and supervisors in the transportation industry to be vigilant of any coworkers who may display symptoms of substance abuse and provide details for effective drug and alcohol testing procedures. This course identifies the causes, indicators, and resultant problems of substance abuse and substance dependency in the US transportation industry. It describes the US laws that relate to drug and alcohol testing of transportation employees and outlines DOT regulations that enforce compliance among transportation employers.
  • identify factors that can trigger substance abuse among adults
  • identify legal substances that, if abused, can lead to workplace problems
  • identify illegal drugs that are commonly abused in the workplace
  • identify examples of workplace problems that are caused by employees using drugs and alcohol
  • identify requirements for compliance under the 1988 Drug-Free Workplace Act
  • identify recommendations for employees to consider when they notice a coworker with a substance abuse problem
  • identify the elements of a successful drug-free workplace program
  • identify DOT procedural guidelines for transportation workplace drug and alcohol testing programs

  • identify service agents who do not need employee authorizations to perform DOT saliva or breath alcohol tests
  • sequence the steps in a DOT-compliant alcohol testing and drug testing procedure
  • identify the recommended steps an employer should take when drug and alcohol test results are positive

DOT: CSA Fundamentals

CSA, which stands for Compliance, Safety, Accountability, is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) initiative aimed at improving commercial motor vehicle (CMV) safety and ultimately reducing collisions, injuries, and fatalities related to CMVs. This course will teach you what CSA is and why it's needed, how it works, and what a carrier can do to ensure it has an effective CSA program. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • recognize why CSA is needed
  • recognize how the three components of the CSA operational model work
  • describe the Safety Management Cycle
  • evaluate a carrier's CSA program

DOT: Hours of Service

The US Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued a revised Hours of Service order in 2012. The effective compliance date of selective provisions was July 1, 2013. Drivers are now limited to 70 hours of driving time per eight-day period. Commercial motor vehicle operators need to be aware of the new driving rules, documentation requirements, and penalties for noncompliance. Hours of Service was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • identify who must comply with HOS regulations
  • specify how the three maximum duty limits impact how you spend your time on duty
  • recognize HOS provisions
  • match examples of what each exception allows you to do to the exception
  • recall what needs to be reported in your driver's daily log

DOT: Air Brakes

Commercial vehicles are used every day to transport both goods and people. An important safety feature on these vehicles, the air brake system is used to control speed. The US Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates the use of air brakes and sets standards for maintaining and operating these systems to ensure they are used and maintained properly. Drivers of vehicles equipped with air brakes need to know the components of the systems, how they work, and how to use them, and make sure they're operating safely. This course introduces the components that work together to create an air brake system, guidelines on operating a vehicle equipped with air brakes, and checklists for inspecting air brake systems and the air brakes on both single and combination units. DOT: Air Brakes was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • match components of the air brake system with how each component contributes to the operation of that system
  • determine whether the test results performed on a given air brake component or system indicate a safety concern
  • match potential braking situations to how you should respond to safely operate your vehicle
  • determine whether the findings of a pretrip brake inspection indicate a safety concern

DOT: Inspections

Maintaining safe working equipment and working conditions are essential when operating large trucks. In order to ensure that vehicles are safe to operate and share the road with, it is important to perform frequent inspections of the equipment you are using, as well as more extensive annual inspections. In this course, you will learn when to perform operator inspections, what to inspect, and how to report your inspections. You will also learn about requirements and standards for annual inspections as required by the Department of Transportation, or DOT. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • identify the main components of driver-based pre-trip, on-route, and post-route inspections
  • identify inspection requirements for intermodal equipment
  • recognize general requirements for annual DOT inspections
  • identify the aspects shared by the minimum standards of annual inspections
  • identify the information that must be included on a report from an annual inspection
