Trucking Industry Safety
The average cost involving a commercial truck crash is $3.5 million… and many of these crashes can be linked to sleep apnea. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is well aware of this and has put sleep apnea as the main topic of discussion when it comes to trucking industry safety as they look forward to new regulations for commercial drivers. The National Transportation Safety Board has been fighting fatigue and sleep apnea since it was formed nearly twenty years ago. And with just over a thousand deaths each year, and the damage ranging in the billions, trucking industry safety has become a hot topic of discussion for the FMCSA and everyone else involved.
It has been highly documented that sleep apnea fatigue has similar effects of a driver who has 0.7 blood alcohol level. This is why when it comes to trucking industry safety regulations, sleep apnea is a huge concern. There has been a lot of talk about strict regulations, and it is sure to come, but at the time it is left up to the drivers to regulate what they do when on the road.
