Time For the Trucking and Heavy Machinery Industries to Wake Up!

icine and the National Sleep Foundation made

recommendations that placed drivers, employers and physicians on notice

about this problem and proposed specific steps that should be taken to

reduce preventable accidents attributed to OSA.

--Schneider National, a national trucking concern based in Wisconsin,

recently reported that treating drivers for OSA provides health care

savings that more than covers the cost of implementing a program.

--Inexpensive, accurate and convenient methods to diagnose OSA are now

available.

--Treatment options exist that can reduce the debilitating symptoms

associated with OSA.

--Existing case law exists to frame an argument for punitive damages for

employers and physicians and criminal convictions for employees if OSA

problems are ignored or hidden resulting in truck collisions causing

death or other serious harm..

A complete copy of the published articles, "Assessment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Risk and Severity in Truck Drivers: Validation of a Screening Questionnaire" and "Assessment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Risk and Severity in Truck Drivers: Commentary on the Legal Implications for Ignoring a National Safety Concern," are available at http://www.b-alert.com.
