Nearly one-third of truck drivers have some form of sleep apnea. This can be dangerous on the road, as well as running afoul of DOT regulations. We provide comprehensive reporting that allows you to track drivers and patients. Learn why this is so important.
Sleep apnea tests are an essential part of DOT compliance for many commercial driving companies. While these tests are not automatically required as part of the DOT physicals, an examiner is likely to require it if the driver has increased risk factors.
These risk factors are often incredibly common, including:
While drivers with untreated sleep apnea will not be permitted to drive, treatment options can help them get “medically-qualified-to-drive" status.
Testing and tracking are also essential for keeping drivers safe on the road. If your drivers are operating a vehicle without getting the necessary level of sleep, they’re at much greater risk of causing accidents.
You want to ensure that your drivers are sleeping regularly, both for their safety and the safety of other cars and drivers on the road. Failure to do so can leave you legally liable while also putting people in danger.
Forward Healthcare provides everything you need for sleep disorder testing. This includes making sure that you’re complying with regulations and keeping risk at a low, manageable level.
