FMCSA proposes sleep apnea rule

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 15, 2016

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has begun efforts to address obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in commercial truck drivers. As part of the proposal, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) are seeking public comment on the impacts of screening, evaluating and treating commercial drivers and rail workers for OSA. FMCSA and FRA will host three public listening sessions to gather input on OSA in Washington, Chicago and Los Angeles as both agencies consider whether to propose requirements specifically on OSA (Fleet Owner).
