Which Online Training Courses Could Your Employees Use?

If your business is in the transportation industry, then you know there are several types of training that your employees need to remain compliant with DOT/DPS regulations. In the modern age, training is easier to keep up with, because many courses can take place online, freeing up more of your employees’ and supervisors’ time for daily operations. Below you can get a look at some of the online courses available through HDS Safety Services to keep your employees up-to-date in their certifications.

Suspicion Testing
It is important for supervisors to maintain a sober and safe workforce, so they need to know the signs of drug and alcohol abuse to recommend testing when necessary. Supervisor Reasonable Suspicion Training can be completed online, and the program is available to access 24/7, so it can be completed on any schedule.

Driver Awareness Training
Supervisors are not the only ones who should have drug and alcohol training. Drivers may take an awareness course to recognize the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace, and they will also learn when and how drug and alcohol testing may take place within their organization.

CDL Knowledge
Your drivers will need to have current Commercial Driver’s Licenses, but their training might go a step further with the CDL Knowledge Test Review. This course provides a comprehensive overview of subjects covered on the written CDL exam, and it may be beneficial for supervisors as well, since they will need to know the rules and regulations their drivers must follow.

Defensive Driving: Light Vehicles
If your fleet includes passenger vehicles or lighter-duty trucks and vans, your drivers may benefit from this defensive driving course. It focuses on defensive driving for light vehicles, which will help keep your assets and drivers protected on the road.
