MARCOM has just released the two part course on “DOT Reasonable Suspicion Testing for Managers and Supervisors”, now available in English! This two part course has been created to satisfy the DOT’s 2-Hour Reasonable Suspicion training requirements.

DOT Reasonable Suspicion Testing for Managers and Supervisors: Part I

DOT Reasonable Suspicion Testing for Managers and Supervisors: Part II

Everyone knows that alcohol, drugs and driving don’t mix. Yet drivers who are “under the influence” are still a major cause of accidents. To help ensure that drivers of commercial vehicles as well as other transportation employees with “safety sensitive” jobs such as mechanics and warehouse workers stay drug- and alcohol-free, the Federal Transportation Employee Testing Act requires motor carriers to establish rigorous drug and alcohol testing programs. This two-part course discusses the Department of Transportation’s drug and alcohol regulations, the procedures that managers and supervisors should use to administer it fairly and effectively, the “Removal-From-Work” and “Return-To-Duty” processes, and more.

This course is part of our Regulatory Compliance Series and is available in both interactive online/SCORM and VOD/video streaming formats as well as DVD, and is now available in both English, with the Spanish version to follow soon.

MARCOM is proud to announce the release of our new course on “Unconscious Bias”, now available in English!

“Unconscious bias” is not a phrase that everyone understands, and yet we all have them. The fact that we don’t know we have them is what makes them “unconscious”. “Unconscious biases” can result in bad decisions, damaged relationships with coworkers, and can even cost your company money. MARCOM’s new course on “Unconscious Bias” discusses how to figure out what your unconscious biases are, the effect they can have on your business, and what you can do to overcome them.

This course is part of our General Safety Series and is available in both interactive online/SCORM and VOD/video streaming formats as well as DVD, and is now available in both English, with the Spanish version to follow soon.
Sexual conduct in the workplace is always inappropriate, but when it’s unwelcome or threatening it’s also illegal. To protect its employees and avoid potential legal actions and hefty fines, a company must be able to recognize, investigate and resolve sexual harassment allegations, promptly and fairly. MARCOM’s updated courses on “Preventing Sexual Harassment for Employees”, “Preventing Sexual Harassment for Managers and Supervisors”, and “Handling a Sexual Harassment Investigation” discuss sexual harassment in the workplace, the policies that a company can use to fight it, and the procedures that should be followed when investigating and resolving reports of harassment.

These courses are part of our General Safety Series and are available in both interactive online/SCORM and VOD/video streaming formats, as well as DVD and are now available in both English and Spanish.

An estimated 15.5 million trucks operate on the roads in the United States. To help keep the roads safe for everyone who uses them, the Department of Transportation requires motor carriers to implement a program of regular inspection and maintenance for the trucks that they operate… whether they have a large fleet, or just a single truck. MARCOM’s new course on “DOT Commercial Motor Vehicle Inspections” discusses Federal inspection and maintenance requirements, how they apply to drivers, and how drivers can help to prevent accidents and injuries by complying with them.

Almost every day you see images in the news of a horrific accident on the highway, many of them involving large trucks. But most of the injuries that CDL drivers suffer aren’t a result of collisions at all. It’s the incidents that occur inside and around the truck, such as hooking up a trailer, loading and unloading cargo, or just getting in and out of the cab that are more likely to lead to an injury. MARCOM’s course on “Injury Prevention for CDL Drivers” discusses the most common types of injuries that are experienced by CDL drivers, and how they can be avoided.

These courses are part of our Regulatory Compliance Series and are available in both interactive online/SCORM and VOD/video streaming formats as well as DVD, and are now available in English, with Spanish versions to follow soon.

But negative lifestyle factors like smoking, poor diet, and allowing stress to build up are like potholes on the road to wellness. In MARCOM’s updated course on “Fitness and Wellness”, employees will learn how to eliminate negative lifestyle factors and gradually implement more positive habits that can lead to a happier, healthier life.

Workplace stress is something that we all face. It can come in the form of a memo from the boss, a call from our children’s school, or not having the right tools for the job at hand.

Starting a new job always gives you plenty to think about. There are new responsibilities and procedures, meeting new coworkers, and getting familiar with the facility itself. But there’s something else new employees need to keep in mind as well, something very important: workplace safety. MARCOM’s updated Spanish course on “Safety Awareness for New Employees” discusses some of the topics employees may encounter on the job, and what they can do to keep themselves and their coworkers safe.

More than two million people care for patients in healthcare facilities around the country. Nurses, aides, orderlies, and other patient care staff conduct patient care tasks that can require them to lift as much as four thousand pounds in the course of a typical shift! It’s no wonder that these essential employees are twice as likely to suffer musculoskeletal injuries on the job as employees in other industries, but injuries like these don’t have to occur. MARCOM’s updated Spanish course on “Patient Handling Safety” discusses the physical hazards that can be associated with patient handling procedures and what healthcare organizations can do to help protect employees from these hazards.
