Reasonable Suspicion Training

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires that all persons designated to supervise drivers receive Reasonable Suspicion Training (RST). In this seminar, Bruce Lawler of Contractor’s Risk Management (CRM) will provide this training for anyone who is concerned with having a drug free workforce.  Not only is RST required by the FMCSA, but it is also an important legal safeguard when attempting to determine if an individual is intoxicated or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

This seminar will provide the formal 2-2.5 hour reasonable suspicion course. There are exercises and a 15  question exam that must be passed before receiving an RST Certificate. RST will now be more important than ever with the ongoing decriminalization and legalization of marijuana. Fill out the form below to register!

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the regulations that apply to reasonable suspicion testing, including the alcohol and drug prohibitions
  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse and drug use and describe what to look for when determining reasonable suspicion
  • Receive a certificate affirming they have passed a Reasonable Suspicion Course.

All Trades – Confined Spaces Training

Confined spaces incidents aren’t the most common, but they can be the most deadly. As we have seen in numerous incidents throughout New England, confined spaces hazards tend to be misunderstood or underestimated. In addition, many confined spaces injuries or fatalities  involve not one, but two, victims: the worker and the rescuer.

BTEA and Contractor’s Risk Management (CRM) are working together to offer this training to all our signatory contractors.  Make sure your employees are up to date on the latest in confined spaces regulations and procedures!

The course covers:

  • Key elements of the OSHA Permit-Required Confined Spaces Regulation
  • Confined spaces concepts and terminology
  • The difference between confined spaces and permit-required confined spaces
  • How to identify and evaluate hazards: atmospheric, mechanical, chemical
    Procedures for controlling hazards
  • Proper protective equipment for confined spaces
  • Duties of the entry supervisor, entrant, and attendant
  • Procedures for self-rescue, non-entry rescue, entry rescue by company employees, and entry rescue by emergency responders
  • Completing the entry process

Free OSHA Fall Protection Training

The Fall Training below is filling up fast but we still have openings.  This is a great opportunity to have you and your employees receive free training on fall protection.  The intent of fall protection is to save lives and prevent injuries.

Many workers are killed each year from falls off of roofs. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 350 of the 937 construction fatalities recorded in 2015 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable.

Prevent the needless suffering of workers, their families and coworkers—be sure all employees are using fall protection.  We are here to help you sort out the requirements and protect your workers.
