Schneider’s Sleep Apnea Program Proven to Dramatically Reduce Risk of Preventable Crashes

Landmark study reveals both lives and loads are safer with sleep apnea treatment program

GREEN BAY, Wis. (Mar. 28, 2016) – According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, driving drowsy makes lapses of attention more likely to occur, which can result in deadly crashes. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleeping disorder that causes obstruction in the upper airway, which results in paused breathing, decreased restorative sleep and frequent drowsiness.Landmark study reveals both lives and loads are safer with sleep apnea treatment program
Schneider, a premier provider of transportation, logistics and intermodal services, long ago opened its eyes to this serious but treatable medical condition. In 2006, Schneider became the first large-scale employer with a program to screen, diagnose and monitor OSA treatment adherence in the U.S. Today, the results of a comprehensive study led by the University of Minnesota, Morris, with contributions from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, proves that this program is having a dramatic and positive impact on the safety of North American roads.

The study, which was recently accepted for publication in the journal, Sleep, involved over 1,600 Schneider drivers with OSA, matched with an equal number of control drivers with comparable job experience and tenure. OSA patients were grouped by treatment adherence and objectively monitored. Drivers received auto-adjusting positive airway pressure (APAP) treatment through a machine that could be used both at home and in the truck sleeper berth while on the road.

By Herb Moring, Schneider National

When going through their daily lives as a professional truck driver, it is essential that every driver possesses good trip planning skills. In today’s high tech society the art of trip planning has given way to routing programs and apps as technology has evolved.

To be an effective and safe driver, each person that operates a truck should be knowledgeable of how to use an atlas and all the tools that are available inside it. When technology fails, does not come up with a solution, or is taking too long, then it is time to pull out the atlas and plan your trip the OLD SCHOOL way.
