The West Coast Waterfront (under the ILWU-PMA collective bargaining agreements) is an "alcohol and drug-free workplace." To achieve this, one component of the industry policy is training. Supervisors (e.g., superintendents, walking bosses, management personnel) and other responsible people (e.g., supercargos/chief supervisor, Union business agents, safety personnel, JAPC members, and any other agreed to by the Joint Coast Labor Relations Committee) shall be trained to address and recognize prohibited alcohol/drug use by workers.

Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™ training is designed specifically for marine terminal staff and foremen who work on the west coast waterfront. This class teaches attendees how to respond to, recognize, and document impaired employees in the workplace using a proprietary five-step process.

In this eight-module class, you learn about the following topics:

  • Understand why Reasonable Suspicion Assessments™ are part of a comprehensive safety system

  • Define reasonable cause and objective evidence

  • Understand the primary systems of the human body and how drugs affect those systems

  • Review common medical conditions that can mimic drug impairment

  • Learn the drug categories based on the Drug Evaluation and Classification Program

  • Learn to use the Reasonable Suspicion Assessment™ Field Worksheet with industry language from the PCLCD

  • Practice documenting observed impairment

  • Review communication skills and how to respond to a potential reasonable suspicion situation

​Training is designed for immediate practical application in the work environment. 

Company-specific curriculum development is available for this class incorporating existing programs, policies, and procedures.
