Sleep apnea not only poses a significant health risk for truck drivers, but also potentially increases liability risk for the motor carriers that employ them, too, reports FleetOwner.

Fleet Owner talked with Michael Nischan, vice president of transportation & logistics risk control, for EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants, working out of the Southeast Region in Atlanta, and Ayana Collins, a 10-year veteran wellness consultant working for EPIC, to get their take on how motor carriers should deal with OSA-related issues not only to protect the health and well-being of drivers suffering from it but also to ensure that it does not pose a safety risk for the fleet as a whole.
