SMMC Series

The Safety Maintenance Management Council (SMMC) has developed a series of classes encompassing many of the topics requested by our membership. Three modules will be offered, one in each of the three remaining quarters of this year. Each module will be held in four locations around the state to give attendees greater access to the classes offered.

The first module will offer training in DOT 101, CSA, DataQ, ELDs, audit prep and a drug and alcohol reasonable suspicion supervisor certification. The second module will cover the Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT) rule, DQ files, medical certification, licensing, and recruiting/retention best practices. The final module focuses on shop safety and compliance including all shop-related OSHA regulations as well as recordkeeping.

Registration for the first module is now open!

COURSE DESCRIPTION
New York State Department of Transportation representatives will present DOT 101 training including, but not limited to 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 an effort 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, and serve as a guide for establishing programs and practices within an organization. 
Instructors: John and Beth McGuire, High Ride Consulting, Drug Recognition Experts certified by the International Association Chiefs of Police

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.
