Sleep Apnea Survey
Several years ago there was a sleep apnea survey hosted on this site.Â The information on the site had no personal identifying information.Â Dr. Barb Phillips and her son Ben Smith took the information and reduced it to a report.Â We are happy to make the powerpoint of the report available here.
We have some issues with some of the content of this page, however, divers need to know what is here.Â Please Read.
Because of the joint efforts of OOIDA, ATA and a number of industry groups, we are please that they were able to get a bill signed by the President that forces the FMCSA to use rulemaking rather then guidance to create any new sleep apnea rules. This was reported on www.trucknews.com, and Bloomberg reported the bill signed earlier this month. Thanks to everyone for their work on this matter.
The leadership team of Truckers For A Cause is happy to report that we are working toward having more meetings. Please stay tuned to know what is coming. If you would like to be notified of these meetings please leave you name and email address in the blanks on the right side of this page.
